I Don't Know If This Is Suppose To Be In This Catagory But I Would Like Opinions From All Over. I Am Trying To Recover From A Severe Cold I Received From My Younger Sister. It Started Out That Way Now It's Serious I Had Severe Headaches At The Back Of My Head. When I Swallow Anything Saliva, Food, Ice Tea Even Air Whatever It Kills Me. My Nose Is Stuffy When I Blow For Mucus Nothing Comes Out Sometimes. I Haven't Slept Right/eaten In A Long Time. I Would Like To Recover Very Soon To I Can Return To Work. Does Anyone Have Any Opinions Or Suggestions?, They'd Be Gladly Appreciated!

  • Hi, Maybe you have some inflammation in your nose? I use salt water drops to reduce the swelling. I just sniff a few drops. The store bought kind gives me sinus infections so I just make my own. The concentration isn't that important, but I use about a teaspoon in a cup of hot water. Some people are going to say YOU AND YOUR SALT WATER, GIRL!!!, but I do think it's great for the nose:) I would try to get those sinuses OPEN! How about eating a hot pepper? I'd also see my doctor, but it's hard to get antibiotics into the sinuses because there is so much bone and not many blood vessels (I read all this stuff, who knows...). Breathe in steam but stay far enough away to not get burned! I never ever take decongestants, I think they are terrible. I would use an antihistamine, though, like benedryl. Hope you feel better! Eat lots of protein!
