Chest Congestion...

8 posts in this topic

So this is day 5 of this nasty headcold. While my nose and head have gotten a tad bit better, i still feel like crud. I do not doubt that this cold weather is not helping none. Now i feel like i've got to cough but can't, that in between stage. I still have one more class to go before i can be done with today. Normally i would just get the shower as hot as i can stand it and just go sit in the bathroom.

 

Any ideas?

Sleep is the only thing that helps me when I get it. I know that is not an option right now so all I can offer is a (((HUG))). (But first, let me get my raincoat, mask, and rubber gloves on. :lol: )

 

Sorry. I didn't mean to laugh at your suffering. Hope you're feeling better soon. :)

This is just icky. I keep going from a normal temp to a feverish temp and back down again. Then my poor nose is so raw.

Get well soon  :unsure:  

 

I wish it was cooler where I live in Ontario Canada.

For the nose hurt, I have a somewhat weird habit of using chapstick to help it. I figure a raw nose is more like chapped lips than just dry skin. Feel better soon!

I'm getting better i think. My head doesn't hurt as bad this morning. My nose, while still stuffed, is doing better. My throat is still sort of sore and sort of itchy (healing perhaps?), especially after i eat or drink something. I still run a low grade fever (99.3 or so).

Neti pot.

Helps me, at least. Helps soften and clean out gunk and prevents post nasal drip. Yuck.

Feel better soon!

I just buy those expensive tissues with lotion in them, and plaster my nose with polysporin.

:( I hope you feel better!

    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
    • How were the allergies diagnosed? I only ask because it's highly usually to be allergic to it.
