Lupus+Cold

What are some tips for fighting off a nasty cold? I have been sick for about 4 days and I'm not feeling much better. I've noticed the weakness in my arm is getting much worse as well as my breathing.

The best thing for you is to hydrate, rest and take some meds. Warm fluids like tea or soup and keep your body from both overheating or getting chilled. There really isn't anything more you can do than that and ride it out. Feel better soon. 💕🙏🏻🌻😊

I have lupus too. I would get seen by the doctor. Especially if you're having trouble breathing. The lupus and meds for it can cause you to get pneumonia easily.

Chicken soup is gold for colds. Take care and give it time. With asthma, most colds last 3-4 weeks for me. Hugs love & prayers you feel better soon! 🙂🙏💕🌸
