Two weeks ago my friend became severely ill with flu-like symptoms. Fever, chills, cough with phlegm, stuffy nose, weakness and body aches. This illness lasted more than a week and progressed to an ear infection. Two weeks have passed she hasn't recovered completely - lingering cough with phlegm in the mornings. Yesterday she responded to the smell of strong perfume with a severe headache, followed by nausea and vomiting for several hours. Also her cough from two weeks ago is still lingering. She tried to go to the free clinic but they would not accept new patients. Any ideas?
