I feel so ill....

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Ive got a cold, and a very bad cough, it hurts my chest a lot when i cough and it hurts physicaly as well, my head is sore, i keep feeling dizzy, i can hardly walk, and i feel disorientated half the time :( I even took today off work, and i hardly ever take any time off work regardless of wether im ill or not, If i try to sleep i just start to shiver and shake but if i sit up i dont shiver and shake, im constantly freezing cold, even though i have tracky bottoms on, socks, fleece jumper, t-shirt on, doesnt help:( ....
Any one else got any of these symtoms or know of someone who has got/had them...I got the cold from a guy i work with but his wasnt this bad...:confused:

Any advice also as to what i could take that would help me sleep at night, i was told night nurse or nightol(if thats how its spelt??)
Anyway just wanted to say that..

P.S i really am in pain constantly, i said no to my mum calling the doctor out coz they are shite, and misdiagnose everything and give you random medication to help you :eek2:

    sounds like you have the flu? so the chemists would sell things for that.

    i think you should go to the doctors.. it could lead to something worse like pneumonia. you may not want to go but its better to be safe isnt it. i know what you mean though.. i've never found the doctor to be helpful, they never know whats wrong and ive lotst faith in them. but i still go..just to make sure.

    feel better soon.x.
