Please can anyone offer advise or tips. 12wks with twins. Supposed viral throat infection but it's now gone to my sinuses. Paracetamol sleep and milkshake just aren't doing anything. I can't remember ever feeling so ill and run down. I was back at the out of hours doctors today as my head pressure was unbearable but there's just nothing they can do. I've had 4 days off work already and there's no way I'll have the strength to go back tomorrow
I'm 16 weeks and have been suffering with similar, I really feel for you as it's horrible. I've found sitting with my head over a bowl of boiling water and inhaling the steam has helped to clear my sinuses, my GP recommended I do this. lots of hot orange, lemon and honey and then just rest. My GP said it can last a good couple of weeks, normally peaking around 7 days so hopefully you'll start to feel better soon.
I'm sorry, that sounds awful. Try putting some olbas oil in warm water and letting the steam near you? (Ideally, in a bowl with a towel over your head, if you can bear it) Can you go to your GP tomorrow? Hope you are able to find some relief. 💐
I'm on the tail end of a cold (27wks Preggo) and found using some steam (just stick your head over a bowl of hot water) and Vicks on my chest plus regular paracetamol was about as good as it got at home.
It's so rubbish being ill when your pregnant. Hope you feel better soon
