Can anyone suggest anything to help with the pain?

I've been ill for almost a week. Started off as cold/flu and spent 3 days in bed. Thought it was getting better over the weekend, been absolutely horrendous since 10pm last night.

Main pain is in my sinuses, my left ear and, worst of all, pain when I breathe in (feels like a chest infection )

Have been to doctors and he reckons it's a viral infection and my body is trying to fight it off everywhere and to just give it time.

I'm taking paracetamol and ibuprofen but I feel awful. Anything else I can do? Or just some sympathy would be nice.

I'm sending sympathy, I'm on day seven of the damn thing and it's bloody awful.Its not a cold, but it's not flu, but it lingers and makes you feel like shit. I just took paracetamol, rested and comfort eat.Get well soon.

Thank you.

I can't seem to get comfortable at all. Doctor said there's a few things doing the rounds atm. I'm particularly stressed about the time off work.

Sympathy for you here Help I've had a virus for a month and the cough, wheezing, lack of appetite, sneezing, lethargy, mucus and lost voice are still very much here! I don't want to waste my GP's time as she doesnt take me seriously anyway so I guess we'll stfu and wait eh? I've lost several days work from it and look to actually losing my job :/
