And because i was coughing all night ive now pulled a muscle in my right side. I already suffer with muscular discomfort on that side, so its painful now when i sniff or cough.

Any advise on how to nip it in the bud? xx

vitamin C - orange juice will feel lovely. Lemsip will soothe the sore throat. Paracetmol will help the muscular pain. Lots of water, lots of rest

boots do their own brand lemsip which has paracetamol in it, and its pretty cheap. if you take paracetamol, you can take brufen too for the muscular pain

get well soon! x

sympathies - my first day of the Christmas hols today and have woken up with agonising sore throat and achey body. Am not really taking anything just letting it work itself out - drinking lots of hot drinks and I have just taken two painkillers.

As others have said, hot drinks, rest and paracetamol and ibuprofen x E
