I have had flu for the last few days and have felt like s**t! All i seem to do at the moment is go to sleep. Is there any way I can get rid of it? Any old remedies any might have? cough is doing my head in and haveing a stuffed nose and throat aint helping me sleep.

Lemsip max capsules work for me along with hot ribenas. I know the capsules are only decongestant, paracetamol and caffeine but they work for me.

Buy the night time versions which dont have the caffeine in. Or there are the new all night capsules which i'm trying atm. Due to being ill btw not as I am a druggy, honest.

Also in the night put a load of vapour rub on your chest and make sure there is a nice flow of air in the room.

Oh and stay off milk.

Failing all that, go hard on the whiskey.

No quick cures but I know a way that limits the amount I get :)

I don't have the heating on unless its very very cold, I don't even have the heating on when I'm in bed and asleep, its only used to take the chill off mostly with the occasional longer use when its very cold.

I can't stand a place being overly hot so this is worse for me and I seem to get colds more when I've been stuck in warm places. I think its down to when I was younger we had no central heating and so during winter I often had ice on the inside of the windows when I woke up, now my body just doesn't like the heat :)

I'll be honest.. I think most of the "cures" are just a way of you forgetting you are sick. For me its bed rest and wrap up warm and sweat the thing away :lol: :) seems to work :)

I can imagine the line:

"Hey baby, just got back from the Doctors, the prescription is lots of sex in the shower" :lol: :D

i presume u mean 'of' rather than 'on' and if that's so then i think that could be tricky desigium, surely ud have to find someone to do that with who doesnt mind snotty noses, streaming eyes, sweaty flushes, coughing, spluttering and general all round nasty cold effects, hardly romantic, but i guess if it does the trick... :p
