I have the flu. Well I've concluded it's the flu, started out as a minor annoying sniffle last week, went away. Returned the other day full throttle, I feel like I need to start dividing my estate up. đŸ˜·
The worst cough ever, which leads to gagging
Shortness of breath
Fever of 101.7
My dr. is still on holiday vacation, I try to avoid the E.R at all costs, but what I've bought over the counter is not working (Mucinex)
So, is this the flu, or am I about to keel over? Both?
I fear I may have to go to the ER & sit with the Muggles :(
No smart ass answers or I'll scratch you out of the running for my gif/meme collection in my will.
If you aren't pregnant, you don't need to go to the ER for the flu. Get lots of fluids in you, sleep as much as you can, and wait it out. Tylenol and ibuprofen will both help with bringing down a fever, and the drug stores will carry cough suppressants to help you sleep. Vicks vaporub is nice for both congestion and pain too.
