Ugh.. I woke up this morning super achy, head ache, coughing that make the space in between my shoulder blades hurt, and nauseous. And I feel like im in a dream. I feel awful... Any suggestions on how to feel a little better? DH has to go to work in a little bit and I really dont know if I can watch the kids... I feel REALLY bad...

Go to the Doctor and get Tamiflu!!! Supposedly, it reduces your symptoms and shortens how long you have it. Its an antiviral medicine. I just learned about it yesterday. :)

Pick up some chicken noodle soup, decaff Lipton tea bags and ginger ale. Steep the tea bags in the heated ginger ale. It works wonders :)

Go to the doctor and get yourself some Tamiflu. Better hurry, you can only take it if your symptoms started in the last two days.

Theraflu was discontinued but I head alka-seltzer has something like it. There is a really bad flu going on, I hope you don't have because it'll keep you in bed for days.

Alka seltzer plus cold gel caps got me through the flu. I actually felt almost human again an hour after taking them, versus road kill baking in the sun on the side of the highway without the pills.

I never heard of tamiflu I wish i did 2 weeks ago when i had the flu twice in december. All I took was nyquil and cough med my doc perscribed me. It was horrible what got me was the stuffy nose, cough and I couldn't believe how achey I was. The chills was crazy soon as i got dressed after a shower I was super cold.
