Managing the flu
I think I have the flu. My fever has been up and down to 102 for the last 3 days. Achy, sore throat, chilled, etc. What can I do to help?
I have some homemade chicken soup - which I've been eating. I've been drinking hot water with lemon. I've been taking some ibuprofen just to manage the discomfort... already I'm feeling some burning pain from the NSAID but sitting here shivering all day too uncomfortable to sleep, it seemed worth it. Today i didn't take any and my fever is back up to 102 and I feel pretty crappy again.
I have my Neti pot and need to get some distilled water for it... any other decongestant recommendations? I tried an OTC pill last night since both sinuses were totally clogged and I felt TERRIBLE - painful, dry, burning pain in my sinuses and throat.
