Yesterday i got ill. Started with a cough and itchy throat got worse. Last night was horrendouse i was strugling to breath and it felt like id swolled a knife.

This morning took some codine and redbull pushed througj to work. Got sent home with 10 minutes seen a doctor and got give anti b for a chest and throat infection.
My whole body achew.. like the flu but with no cold.
My temp peaks at 40.5 then goes down to 39.then back up. Im freezing so wraped up but trying to cool my head down because it feels like its on fire.

And to make it worse i have to to wear pads because everytime i cough i may wet myself due to giving birth and having a weak bladder now...

Im proper woeing... im never ill.... ever.... i dont like this...

Im in and out of sleep.... but im awake now... so any one want to join my woe is me train?

Any magical remedies thatll help?

Are you taking regular paracetamol and ibuprofen and drinking lots of fluids? This is the main thing that will help. As soon as the antibiotics start working your temp should come down.

Sleep, fluids and alternating paracetamol and ibuprofen (but make sure you don't go over recommended 24 great intake). It was a bit irresponsible of you to go to work. You need to rest when you are this poorly and you may have been contagious. Hopefully with antibiotics you will feel better in 24 hrs.

I am..

I honestly didnt feel as bad as i do now this morning but i thinknthat was the codine covering it. I was there 10 mins. Work have a non offically rule that says comes in then get sent home and can be quite funny if you just call in sick.
Doctors have said i can go in tomorrow if i feel up to it. So have work. Im not going into work tomorrow but am aiming for thursday.
