And today is Thursday.
I know what would help is sleeping, so badly.
But every time I lie down to sleep, I get awful coughing outbursts.
And it stops me from sleeping.
What can I do to get better?
BTW, I tested negative for covid.
BTW, I keep medication as a last resort. Or for emergencies.
I am drinking pukka three mint tea.
And trying to eat home made food to see if I can boost my immune system
Hey have some chicken noodle soup. It’s the American way
Thankyou Abise. I do like chicken noodle soup,
Drinking the tea should help.
Thanks @eighteyedspy23… Yes I need to muster the energy to make more
Do you smoke? If you do, take a break or slow down on it until you feel better.
I don’t smoke, @eighteyedspy23
I’ve found a sleeping position where my cough seems to be be slighlty less violent this is good.
When I used to get a cough when I was a kid and a teen my dad would tell me to sit up in bed and try to sleep so I would do that. Don’t know if it helped or not. If you have a couch or a recliner you can try sleeping on those.
You could have a chest infection. Please go to see your family doctor.
Feel better @LittleMissSlothy
Drink plenty of fluids including lots of clear tea, no milk or cream.
Yeah I agree with @everhopeful
Go see a doctor
Yea that’s what I’d like to do but it doesn’t really work I can’t sleep on my bed like that. However sleeping on my belly with pillow under chin seems to help… Thankyou
Do you have cough drops in the UK. Here in Canada we have these…
They said I have absolutely nothing. I wasn’t even coughing when he was speaking with me. No congestion. No fever. No nothing. Lol he should listen to my coughing when I try to sleep
I just went through a flu infection over the past 10 days. Had violent coughing outbursts day and night. But now those flu symptoms have gone and I am alive again. I did go see the doctor and got some antiflu medicine.
So I think you should go see your family doctor and seek the help of medication. Hope you recover soon.
If you have just sore throat and cough might want to try Indian ginger tea. Guessing you’re from UK might be bit familiar with it.
Might want to try a half table spoon of honey if you have got it. Helps with soothing throat.
That’s good you got better after 10 days yea I think it will take me 10 days too.
I’m on day 7 and feeling better but not there just yet.
Yea ginger tea… But I spent all my money on Peppermint tea now.
Glad to hear this @LittleMissSlothy
Hang in there
Hope you feel better soon. Enjoy the peppermint tea!
