I have a headache, feels like I have golf balls in my throat and can barely swallow, very blocked sinuses and generally feel like the world is going to end.

I have been taking paracetamol, drinking ribena and last night I put olbas on a muslin and sniffed it although I couldn't really smell it.

What else can I do please? I have taken today off but have something important I have to attend tomorrow morning so need to try and get as well as possible

Thanks all

Nasal drops ? To clear your nose. Works for up to 12 hrs too.

I would suggest you get allergy tested pronto!

Onion and honey mixture used as a warming syrup: chop up onion and mix with 3-4 tblspoon of honey, manuka if you have it, leave to stand for a few hours and when juices run take a tablespoon 3-4 times a day; repeat as required
Inhalation of steam over a cup of hot water/lemon tea honey and of course you can drink it when cooled down
Keep warm (socks in bed if needed)
