Not for DC for me. I've had horrible chills all day, can't get warm. Taken flu capsuals. Is a nice hot bath a good idea? I feel like that's what I need, but don't know if its likely to make it worse in the long run? Any advice?
thanks so much for the reply. my boyfriend laughs at me because I consult the internet for everything, but I thought I'd read somewhere it made it worse (might just be for kids though). Can't find anything on google so will try and steam this bug out in a sec.
Having chills actually can mean that your temperature is high so if check this first. If it's 38c or above id recommend stripping off a bit. It sounds weird but it should work. Hope you feel better soon
I don't think I have fever, feel freezing cold, like I can't get warm. But apart from that I don't know how to tell? Feel dog rough anyway. don't think a drink would help, for a moment I thought hot toddy . but I don't think that would mix well with paracetamol and no food!
I feel you wilderness, hoping to be better for tomorrow as meant to be going to my mums for Xmas but elderly grandad is there and can't expose him to said mystery illness . Hope you have a speedy recovery.
