It's really gotten out of hand this year like never before. Keep using hand sanitizer and keep your hands away from your face. More often than not, we give ourselves the flu via eyes, nose, and mouth touching. So stop picking your boogers everybody and stay healthy!

Not sure if I have the flu or not.

 

I have had thick congestion in my sinuses moving into my chest now. real sore throat, fever and chills...coughing and sneezing like a maniac....and my body aches like no end. Been battling the shiiiii....shiii.....diareah too. (I'm sure you all wanted to know that) lol

 

I really don't know the difference between the flu, colds, bugs, etc. I'm sick and have been since Wednesday. Hope to feel better soon and hope the same for all of you. I want to get back in the woods.

I am fighting my second ear infection in the last 4 weeks and an upper respiratory infection (sinus, fluid in lungs, sore throat), so I feel your pain. Surprisingly getting out and walking feels good.. its the from the car to the cold all day at work that's killing me. Brings on a cough that gives me a headache. On an inhaler, antibiotics and drinking a ton of water/V8.

 

Get better soon. This has been the worst 6 weeks health wise for me.

Matty go to the doc you have the flu. And stay away from Howell please.

 

I almost feel guilty, I had a head cold for 3 days. Feel great now.

 

I got the flu one time and like roadkill it was from the damn flu shot. Never again. (that and I faint when I see a needle)

 

You guys rest up and get well soon. Matty go to the doctor the flu is serious stuff.

I had what the Dr said was the Flu for about a week. Then I got a sinus infection and went on antibiotics for 5 days. Then Sat night after feeling great for 3 days the diarrhea and vomiting started . Thought I was gonna die. Felt week on Sunday and today I'm ok. I think the last thing I had was norovirus. Total days sick 21.

I promise to stay away from Howell. LOL

 

As for the dr though, I never go. Only if I think I'm actually going to die or I can't duct tape my own body parts back on. lol

 

I'm doubling up on my vitamins, drinking lots of orange juice *(watered down so it doesn't burn my already raw throat so much)... and resting a little extra, but at the same time not slowing down too much, I find I usually get worse if I just stop pushing with any sickness.

 

Hammer4reel,

my uncle suggested Mucinex to break up the congestion, he was hit hard by it too. He said that helped. May want to try that as well. I haven't yet, but if it lingers, I will.

 

Feel better all!:beer:

I just got over a bad cold...Thankfully it wasnt the flu but I did lose my voice for 2 days (that was a first)...

 

Matty,

 

Mucinex will break up the congestion...Some Advil Cold/Sinus will help clear head... Lots of Water and No night Pred hunting for a week or so...
