I have been slammed with this horrible flu/sinus infection/throat infection/bronchitis type superbug that has wiped me off my feet for the past week (my only week off of course!). I have been taking advil q4h for 7 days and my head feels like it will explode any second, my eyes are swollen, my muscles and joints HURT, I can barely talk, my voice is fading away,I'm coughing, my chest aches, etc etc. I am supposed to go back to school tomorrow and start my psych rotation. I am on antibiotics but they are doing nothing. Any home remedies or tips you use to boost your immune system quick? I tried vitamin C as my mother suggested but taking it for the past 7 days has again done nothing!! Thanks for any and all natural remedy tips!!!!!

Oh my gosh, I can feel for you. I battled that about three weeks ago. I finally went to the doc after two weeks of thinking I would get better on my own. I did have bronchitis and all the other crud you talked about. She put me on a Z-pac and within 36 hours I felt 100% better. It took a good three days for the cough to subside, but I felt like a new person after two days. I hope you get to feeling better very soon. Z-Pac did the trick!! What antibiotics are you on?
