    OMG. Been building up for over a week and now I feel it has reached it's peak, or at least, I hope it has... because then tomorrow I will hopefully even just feel a tad better... :(

    Started with the sniffles, progressed to a headache. Next day the sniffles, headache and sore throat. Day after, nasal congestion, a headache, a sore throat and inability to speak clearly. Day after, feeling better, but now just a persistent cough - no pain involved - was tolerable. Day after this, sore throat, persistent cough which made my chest hurt everytime I coughed, also the sniffles and a headache. This morning a persistent cough, everytime I cough my muscles hurt just below my ribs, a sore throat that feels swollen, can hardly talk, the sniffles, aches & pains - stiff neck, painful ears and I just feel dead.

    I want to go to bed, but I've just been in bed! I am REALLY hoping to feel better by tomorrow. I've been taking Lemsip with little effect and some cough mixture which hasn't helped at all.

    All I need now is the sickness & diarrhea and I'd be complete!

    Happy New Year! *sniffs* :(

    Thank you :hug:

    I am feeling a bit better. Didn't get much sleep last night. Woke at 5am and just couldn't rest after. Coughing fits started, making me physically sick again. Came downstairs for some Beechams (lemsip wasn't much help, so trying Beechams instead) then went back upstairs. As the hour went on, the coughing ceased. I am normally worse with these things during the night and first thing in the morning (I think everyone is). I went to work as I felt much better within myself by 7:30am. Still had a clogged up nose but wasn't sneezing or coughing my germs everywhere. Work went alright, was glad to get home, though. I'm pretty tired. My throat still feels swollen, like it has a lump in it or something, my nose is still clogged up and my ears still hurt. Now I'm home, the odd cough now and then, too. But, I am feeling better than the past 2 days. Am hoping this is the start of it going!

    Heard of, but don't think I can get to chemist until Thursday. By then I think my lungs will have protruded from my mouth. Haven't stopped coughing this evening!

    I haven't been drinking much coffee anyway. Have replaced the coffee with Lemsips or Beechams (not together, took lemsip for few days, didn't help, tried beechams after). :tongue:

    Called in sick this morning and had to phone the civic 'absence due to sickness' line. Nurse called back and said if it doesn't get better in a few days, see a doctor. No doubt the doctors are plagued with people with these symptoms as this bug is going around a lot. I hate wasting doctors time and if it's just a cold then there's nothing they can do anyway.

    This morning I have a headache, persistent cough (I think I have bruised a rib as I have coughed so much), sore throat, sickness and a stiff neck, as well as a runny nose one minute and clogged up the next.

    My dad went to chemist and got Covonia for me. Smells like petrol, tastes pretty yucky. By the smell and taste, if it doesn't help it'll kill me. :laugh: :yuk:
