sorry to hear that guys. Think about giving a neti pot a try. It will clear out your sinuses pretty well. Dave, with your ear problems, you might not be able to use it. When I do, it starts to fill up my ears, like if I had been swimming all day.

They can be bought in most any pharmacy

Same thing as NeilMed sinus flush I suppose.

I'm feeling a little better...been hacking stuff up all day. Sinus headache's are killing me. I'm trying to steer away from meds and rely on my body to handle it as I think we as a society take too much medication for stuff that can easily be handled by our bodies...that's probably why we are always sick due to the lack of immunities.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well (but feeling better, at least).

I haven't been sick in 5 years and I've never had the flu *knock on wood*. But, I attribute that to me taking in so much vitamin c. :)

Whenever I feel like I have something coming on, I immediately take echinacea, airborne, drink OJ and take zycam.

By the evening, or the next morning, I'm feeling great. :)

Hope you feel better!

I'll tell you, I'm thankful I've staved this crap off. I watched everyone around me get sick and the most i've had so far is just some sniffles that lasted for a few days. I almost never get sick, but when I do, it's usually pretty severe.

As I hear all too often in nursing school, one of the most effective ways of avoiding illness is "Handwashing, handwashing, and more handwashing." Either that or live in a plastic bubble.

I think all of that is bullshit. The reason half of us that get sick is because we bleach everything now, use hand sanitizer and we eat preservatives like its going out of style.

My aunt is a neat freak that bleaches all of her counters and stuff, and just never let her kids be kids and get dirty...her 3 boys are always sick now.

I'm a clean person don't get me wrong...but my daughter isn't raised as a bleach baby because I want her immune system to be strong and healthy.

I've resisted taking medicine and I'm finally over my now...still a little coughing stuff up.
