Disturbing cold and cough...etc.

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I saw my internist on Thursday and Strep culture was negative. Dr. did give me Rx for cough syrup to help with sleep (cough is waking me up at night) and she said I could use it at work as there is a minimal amount of codeine in 5 ml (1tsp). She also gave me a handwritten 'script for an antibiotic in case my sinus symptoms worsen.

Dry foods hurt to swallow so have been limiting my food intake to foods high in water content. Apples are good, especially if cooked and peeled.

Hopefully a three day weekend (I got Monday off) will also help me get better.

I have a pretty contant sinus headache which I am going to see if my face steamer (from garage sale for $2) will help. I also am going to try my netipot with himalayan salt which has been helpful in the past.

Dr. said it is probably a virus which seems to be going around. At work we have quite a few people with similar symptoms. I hear a lot of sneezing and coughing there.
