    What do you do with the olive oil?

    .. You probably caught a cold from going Commando Style everywhere ..

    warm it up, it breaks down wax build up but it can make it worse by lodging it. It didnt do anything to me :( i stupidly bought some drops to but they are oil based so the same thing really but they didnt work :(
    it's more my sinuses i think tho but cant get to the docs!!!

    Well whatever you do DON'T hold your nose and blow, I did that once semi by accident and ever since I get ear infections in my left ear from time to time!!

    Honey and Apple cidar vinegar is good for a sore throat not sure about sinuses!!

    And if you're off work who's gluing the engines on the planes?

    I had a terrible sinus infection the other week that really messed up my ears and my nose was streaming. I did get some antibiotics in the end from the doctor, but only cos it had gone on for 3 weeks.
    However, you can clear the congestion, albeit temporarily with pills called Contac, or the Sudafed 12hr stuff. It should work, I used it so I could do my normal shifts at work, even though I felt like shit. Also, put your head over hot water in a sink with a towel over then blow our nose (didnt do this but the doctor said it really helps?!).
    Umm with the ear thing, I always get told to use those inhaler things that you inhale through your nose, but I can never do it properly if my sinuses are all blocked!
    Hope it gets better :)

    :wave: Where've you been, girlie?!

    sorry you're poorly :( But you're right, the days are getting longer and the clocks go forward within the next coupla months :D

    x

    P.S.: If you've been putting oil in your ear you can get the nurse to syringe them. But it has to be oil not drops, and for 5 days. At least that's what my surgery always says. I get blocked ears all the time.
