I have been keeping up with gacrohns' post on her pneumonia and then BAM here I go with a cold.
I have been sick now since last Thurs and been in denial thinking that this is going to go away like "normal" pre-everything crohn's. symptoms: have had low grade fever 99.5 since thurs. runny nose (clear), beginning last night coughing so now my chest is starting to hurt (am asthmatic but I don't usually have problems until Febish). chills to the point where I have to take a shower to warm up.
What do you regulars do when you have a cold?
are there any supplements that you take like echinesia? (sp). I've been drinking emergenc + my normal vitamins (multi vitamin, extra calcium, probiotic, omega 3), tylenol and drinking fresh juices like odwalla, plus my usual hot teas: peppermint, lemon, or chamomile with raw honey.
How long does it take for colds to run their course on an immune suppressed system?
My hospital has flu shots for the staff on oct 18th so I guess I'm not going to be able to get that since I'm already sick so I want to get better. =0(
I've almost missed a whole week of school and work so I'm starting to stress out.
