    I started coming down with a cold two days ago (not bad), felt like total crap yesterday, and just woke up after a whopping 2 or 3 hours of sleeping to to a pounding headache Has anyone else come down with a nasty cold recently (perhaps due to the sudden change in weather?) I'm supposed to go fishing with R&R this saturday and don't want to cancel (which I doubt I will) the trip....frig.. s.cks...can't remember the last time I felt this bad...anyone else? Bad headache (drinking water which I need to do is difficult) stuffed nostrils, ears clogged(to the point where I feel like I have an earache), extremely sore throat, etc. I could plug my nose, force air into my head (like you do to "unplug your ears") and fill up a 5 gallon bucket with phlem in no time(that is after I made are really cool sounding noise).....aaaaarrrrgggghhhh!!

    Banker, Im a paramedic and I also work part time in An ER here in Columbus and I have noticed that there is alot of funky head colds going around. It isnt serious, and it only takes a few days to pass

    I was really bad for 2 days. Though not 100% (I'm perhaps feelin about 85%) I feel much better now(the canned cream corn and tomato soup that I ate yesteday seemed to do the trick not only that but tasted awesome too!). Seeing as how its 5:40 maybe I'll just have to go fishing....
     
  10. Oh great. Welp I am sure I will get it with my current lack of sleep. Welp thanks for the warning. I will be sure to be drinking los o fluids and orange juice.


    Later,

    Yep, same symptoms here. First started out as a mild sore throat, then a cold, then one night it felt like someone was driving an axe into my skull at 4:00 AM. Not fun at all. Now I am just coughing up all of the nastiness that's left over in my lungs. It got so bad on the way to the lake that I needed to buy a can of Pepsi to drink and then use as a spitter (Didn't want to wind down the window- AC was on!). This heat and humidity is not helping either.
     
  13. I am having similar things going on. Sore throat, Head all stuffed up, and crap in my lungs. Not fun but I still make time for fishing.:D

    I am always getting a sick with a cold, either head or chest, usually bronchitis, sinusitis, upper resp. blah blah blah well, my brother has a doc. friend and said at first symptoms of anything start taking 2000 mg of vit. c twice a day. I have started that and for the first time I can remember the symtoms go away and no doc visit is needed. Usually it is a steroid shot and antibiotics. I do miss the shots cuz they keep the joints feelin good for a couple of days. anyhow, when I remember I take 1000 mg. a day just in case. Could be the placebo effect but aint been sick in a while. knock on wood.

    I was sick with a cold, potentially strep throat about 3 weeks ago. Thought it was odd since it was the middle of summer and I rarely get sick. Guess it's going around, a buddy of mine was sick couple weeks ago also...
