It started off as just a blocked nose last night, this morning it erupted into full body pain, literally full body pain - especially in my shoulders. It feels as if someone cut into my shoulders and back with a knife. I have a constant cough accompanied by a sore throat. And my nose is leaking more fluid than a 1970 Datsun. Luckily no vomiting or diarrhea yet - thank god. Lungs burn and my brain hurts.
I've had broken ribs and a broken arm that felt better than this, I honestly feel like i could kill myself just to ease the pain.
Sad thing is doctors are closed tomorrow.
I have the following things at home.
Vicks Vaporub (expired in 2010). Cepacol throat lozenges - been eating these like sweets. I have Flusin effervescent tablets which i took some of, I also was given some paracetamol by my mother.
Any one know of any home remedies? My muscle ache, nose and throat are by far the worst. I took a hot bath and it didn't help at all.
I feel like I'm 100 years old and fragile.
