Sympathy

I have flu and it's horrible. My ear keeps popping I ache all over I am hungry but I can't eat and I've slept all day so I have to stay awake or I won't sleep through tonight. Grrrr. Sulk. Tylenol isn't doing anything, nor is Nurofen, can anyone suggest something over-the-counter that might relieve the symptoms?

    I would maybe suggest dayquil and nitequil because they usually seem to help me when I am sick with a cold or the flu. Just a suggestion and thought. Maybe someone else has a better suggestion.

    sorry to say it, but you just need to rest, keep yourself topped up with parecetamol (not too much) and have plently of rest, fluids and lemsip!

    *hugs you*

    You`re not supposed to take paracetamol and lemsip because there is paracetamol in lemsip.

    Been taking Lemsip today, seems better than nurofen. Yay. Still, will probably be laid up in bed tomorrow, still have a high temperature. Damn flu, it's going round my politics class!
