    Had it a week ago, lost my voice entirely for 5 days. Ended up with larygitis (duh) and sinus infection and the beginnings of an ear infection. If you lose your voice with it I would suggest a doctor visit. Cuz my wasn't getting better on it's own. I had to get antibiotics

    I've got it right now. Just took my second sick day for it and it's feeling like I'm going to take tomorrow off, too. I NEVER do this. I have to fly on Sunday, and I'm getting a little nervous, b/c I agreed to pay for my own ticket and be reimbursed (b/c I wanted to have control over the time I flew) and if it turns out that I can't take that trip due to illness, I don't think work will pony up the $300 I spent on my ticket! Right now, the worse symptom I have is violent sneezing and wicked nasal congestion, but I've had alternating hot and cold flashes, a bit of a sore throat and clogged ears to go with it. Blech.

    OH BOY HAS IT....mywhole family is suffering. I am SICK OF IT. I hope this my typical "big one" I get each year, usually, then I am healthy all winter. Once done, it's done. I sure hope so anyhow.

    Get well soon.

    I had a little head cold about three months ago, but none so far this season. Take care.

    Not sure if it's the same cold, but I had it similar a few weeks ago. Boy, was I miserable. Glad to be better though.

    I'm so sorry, I hope you get well soon.

    Luckily we've been spared. Hopefully, we stay well.

    I've already had a cold this year. It was preceded by a UTI with a course of abx, then I got the cold, which I always love to follow with a sinus or ear infection. I thought I'd go with the sinus infection this time- thank God I saw my OB in the ED one day (she was consulting one of my patients) and gave me another abx script!

    I'm sorry y'all are sick. We've dodged the bullet so far this year.

    I hope that we all feel better soon. Now I'm getting a frickin yeast infection from this darn antibotic. I can't win

    [font="book antiqua"]i've got it right now. in fact, it rolled over me just today, in the space of the 8 hours i was at work, i developed a sore throat, itchy eyes, outrageous joint aches, stuffy, runny nose, and a fever. yuck. it can't go away soon enough.
    i did go through a reaction from the flu shot, but i don't think they're related.
