I've been lousy with this all weekend and it hurts when I swallow...oooh err missus!
I've tried gargling warm salt water and nearly wrenched up my chicken soup...what else can I do?
www.patient.co.uk advises gargling with soluble aspirin - I don't know if it works though - but you should definitely try to drink as much water as possible and take paracetamol. Hope you feel better soon.
Hi, waynet, is it a man flu thing? ha ha sorry couldn't resist! I always try the herbal way, if you have any garlic try chewing on it, it is great for killing germs and soothing the throat. Also onion is pretty good too. Try drinking loads of herbal drinks like elder flower, that's good for flu, if flushes out the toxins, and if you add a bit of marjoram that will make you sweat it out! But the best thing to do is try and keep of tea and coffee, and just keep to the warm herbals. Comfrey is good for the bronchials and chamomile will make you sleep when you keep getting restless at night. A whisky works as well! lol actually spirits will help if you only gargle them! I said gargle, listen to me! good luck
Wow cheers, so I really need to drink a few bottles of spirits and chew on some garlic....and man flu? I'll have you know this is a very serious condition lol! well for me anyway, I've been off my food for nearly 4 days and only had bits of soup here and there, I'll be wasting away quite soon!
Gargling with salt is quite good Sounds like you need an antibiotic type of thing... cranberry juice, garlic.. you run down by any chance?
Yep run down, been off hubbing the last few days, managed to scrape one in today, but yes exhausted!
I did ring the emergency doctors, but he said can you come across to the other side of town and I said I've no car and it's 9:45 on the night, so I can't make it and he said right see ya soon! bloody doctors!!
