Feeling rotten :( advice pls

I've had this cold for about a week now, but yesterday my throat became so swollen I couldn't swallow, so my doctor gave me Co-codamol for the pain. Now today I've not been able to take any medication or eat as I've vomited twice. I've never had sickness with a cold before! What can I do to get this bug/virus gone! I've still got a few things to sort out for Christmas and I'm worried I'll be ill over the festive season.

  • Are you sure it's not the pain pill that is causing you to vomit? They usually have that affect on me.

    Otherwise I am on week four of my cold/flu/bug/infection/rare tropical disease... LOL!

    Drink plenty of water, get rest and don't push it.

  • **You are throwing up from the pain med Co-codamol. It has Codeine in it. Stop taking it & take Advil or Tylenol instead & the nausea will stop.
