One hell of a cold!

Dec 10, 2017 10:08 AM

I have been progressively been getting sicker and sicker from Thursday. My head is killing me and my glands are swollen everywhere including in front of my ear on my cheek. I just started taking musinex and have relief from my fibro but my cold make it hard to breath. I have to work tuesday and not sure whether to call out today for Tuesday or wait until tomorrow. Ugh. My first illness since having fibro in 2 years. My hubby has been helping a great deal. He did the dishes and the laundry for me and helped me lay down for a nap while he did them. I know he doesn't understand but he tries to and that makes me so happy. Just wanted to vent.

try taking allergy medicine. The last time I had a really bad cold my sinuses were so clogged that I couldn't even lay my head on the pillow because my whole head hurt. I went to urgent care and told them I was taking musinex and it wasn't working and they told me to take Zyrtec. Even though it wasn't allergies it cleared up my sinuses and I felt a lot better
