I don't know what I have had, but I have taken at least 4 sick days in the last month for this horendous sinus/cold/chest cold thing. I will spare you the details, but it has taken me down, in more ways than one. Couldn't use my cpap and added to the dragged out feeling, I am extra wiped out, can't do my exercise program I had just gpottne off to a good start on.
I'm off Mon-Fri this week, and I am going to try to at least do the easy exercise video so I don't get completely soft!
Nothing worked for me, Vit C, my old trusted echinecea, nada!!
I was on 10 days of augmentin, and just started to feel more alive on day 9, so before the weekend hit, I called my doc, not sure if AB's are re-ordered for a second round, but he thought it was a bad idea to stop them now, so another 10 days. Now the side effects, esp the GI tract...lovely. And I can't smell or taste anything, have this weird metallic taste which I think is from the augmentin.
I am glad you called out. Stay homw, take good care of yourself. I had been burning the candle at both ends, working OT, school, etc, and burned myself out on top of it. Make some homeade chicken soup w lots of garlic in it too.
Hope you feel better soon!
