I know we are supposed to check for gluten, but I have never actually seen any that really has gluten in it.   Lots of companies won't say it's gluten-free, but it is.

Hi Rain,

I had the flu this year and got by with aspirin, hot tea and fermented grape juice.  Some people say echinecea can help and maybe coconut oil or oregano oil.  I don't know though, I didn't try them myself.

Here is a site with information on gluten-free drugs. http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/

Relenza or Tamiflu asap! You get the script from the doc. They first do a test to make sure you have the flu. Tamiflu cut my suffering in half. 

Fyi flu always seems to have - at least- body aches and fever.

Rainwilliams,

I think vitoria1234 is right.

I am in the same boat with you right now.

I recently had some plumbing issues that exposed me to a lot dust and that causes me to cough usually from it (dust of any kind) (and forget to use a respirator (paper mask) though it was on my list?

So I run and get mucinex (great as an expectorant).  this has happened before coughing from a dusty environment say after I work around hay.

But this morning woke up with a slight temperature?

This is new.

Turns out I went out to eat after my plumbing accident yesterday and by chance a young kid (and family) in the next booth were discussing how their school 50 miles south of me was out all week for the flu?

I didn't think much about it at the time.

Now I have both a mild fever and aches (not from working on plumbing) +++ the cough I expected and have very successfully treated with Mucinex in the past.

Active ingredient "Guafensin"

In liguid form it is sold as Robin Tussin but I usually take it as mucincex/pill form but someone recently (totally unonfimred hearsay) who rececently in my church had the flu recently  that the Liquid form (Robintussin) or its equivalent in the liquid form . .  works faster.  Many generics are available.

The medicine is a little bitter or has a bite (in liquid form) if not swallowed quickly in pill/mucinex form.

I dont' know if it is true or not whether the liquid form is faster acting or not.  Makes sense though.

So I am off to get some Robintussin and maybe some long lasting Mucinex.

Wish you the best.

I think because I already had an inflammed lung (bronchitis) from (breathing insulation/dust) then it made susceptible to the kid in the next booth.

But who knows?  But the time line tells me that is where I probably got it.

And why they tell people to stay home! until you are better! and why I  have taken off from work today.

I hope this is helpful.

For home remedies this will sound odd! Hum it can help your sinusitis.

here is a quick goole search on sinusitis and humming.

***this is not medical advice but among my friends who after they stop laughing at me.  usually get better or have reduced symptom's form humming if you think it the sinusitis flaring up.
