Fix yourself a few rum toddy's. It probably won't cure you but it'll make being sick more tolerable. Smile

Yep, started feeling bad Thursday evening. By Friday afternoon I thought for sure I had the flu. Called the doc, his office was closed...but his nurse said with the symptoms I described, I should probably visit the ER. So off we went...my wife and I spent four hours Friday night in the ER, only to be told it wasn't the flu, but some other viral respiratory infection which is fairly rampant right now.

The ER doctor told me that he was concerned (because of my age...lol) that there could be a secondary infection. So he put me on a run of antibiotics.

I spent most of the weekend in bed, but I went back to work this morning. If it wasn't the flu, I want no part of it. Still have a really deep, chest rattling cough.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Dock.

Mike

I got whacked really bad with it in january, stomache flu, fever, etc. Lasted a good week. Am now in day 2 of a sinus thing - i feel ok but not quite myself and have some major allergy-like symptoms. I usually get bad allergies in april but never this early so not sure that it isn't just a headcold. Pipe has no taste, this sucks Evil or Very Mad

I have had it for a week. Started with sinus. Eyes hurt, teeth hurt. Now it's more of a mild cough. Starting to break up good.

This S**T is everywhere. I've been traveling (work) for three weeks; being very careful (lots of soap and water, no touching face/eyes, using anti-bacterial wipes and gels, etc.). Still caught some sinus mess; but not the flu. Got home...wife's sicker then hell with the flu!! Got her to the doctor; meds working great! This stuff is hard to get rid of!! Hope everyone gets well soon. FTRPLT

I am going to start the third week of it next week. Still some sinus pain and pressure on one side. Teeth ache etc. Today I am doing a course of decongestant and Aleve. Seems to be breaking more of that crud up.

Thanks Tom. I'm feeling better, but still have this cough that's lingering. It's been over a week now. It seems to be breaking up, slowly but surely.

Thanks for the good karma guys! Very Happy

Dock, did you have the flu or this viral sinus thing going around? Mine was the viral sinus thing. Still doctoring for it, but I am in the hamshack today.

I haven been online much for the past week because I've been fighting that sinus/viral thing. Man was I messed up!!! It's going on nine days now and I'm finally starting to feel better.

I am sorry to see that so many others have been down as well!

My son has had it and I am like walking around behind him with a Lysol can, running him out of every room in the house. I haven't gotten it yet and I am going to great lengths to keep it from happening!

Hope you guys get to feeling better!

Going on day 3 here. Both myself and my wife have it at the same time. Am able to get up and move around a bit more today, but only for a bit. Everything hurts. Feel like I did when I was in a head-on collision. Hoping it's not true; but from what I'm hearing; we're in for a week of feeling like crap.

If you haven't gotten it yet; I pray you don't! And for those of you who have it; get better soon.

Well, I made it to work all week. Still have a bit of the sinus cold hanging in there. Just minor.

But it seems to have messed my sense of taste and smell up. I can taste and I can smell, but not with the usual level. Things seem bland.

I got a package of 16 tins yesterday. Thought I would try Irish Flake for the first time. I was looking for an extraordinary experience because of the vitamin N level that is supposed to exist. It was ok. A bit bland. Maybe med-strong. But no vivid colors or that green feeling in the stomach or anything. Dang! Thought maybe it would jump-start the taster. Looks like it's only going to be half-there until I completely get rid of this cold.

I might try some Sam Gawith Black rope tonight. Or some big bowls of Old Joe Krantz. Maybe I am swinging back to the burley side. In preparation for Spring. Although we look like we are in the middle of an ice age outside right now.

I had read the posts here and was thankful that I had not came down with the flu this year. I very rarely get sick, and when I do I usually just tough it out and truck on. Well I am in day three and still feel miserable. I actually called in sick, which is something I can count on one hand that I have done in the last five years. Had 103 temp two days ago, down to 99.5 today. At least I got to enjoy the box pass before this thing hit.

Hoping those of you who have had (or still have) this thing are feeling much better, and hoping those of you who are healthy stay that way.

I had the flu just recently also had Strep throat on top of it too. I even got the flu shot, which I do and recommend for everyone every year. Its a small amount of money to pay so as to not lose alot of money being out of work for a week or more.

I also went to the doctor within 48 hrs and he gave the a script for Tamiflu. The next day I felt ALOT better, the stuff really works great. The day after that I was back to making pipes. I hope everyone feels better soon.

I have been very lucky so far this year. My wife had it but I haven't gotten it. I take so many meds the germs most likely invaded and got high and wandered out to go some place else lol! I did get the shot and I'm sure it helped a little. My wife got the shot and got sick a long time afterwards so we can't b;ame the shot. Lordy do I ever feel lucky cyclops sunny affraid
