Code Red, I Need a CM Doctor to Report to this Post Stat...Bring the Chaplain.

Posted by   + Show Post
I have the flu. Well I've concluded it's the flu, started out as a minor annoying sniffle last week, went away. Returned the other day full throttle, I feel like I need to start dividing my estate up. 😷



Runny nose

Chest pains

Back pains

The worst cough ever, which leads to gagging

Shortness of breath

Headache

Hot flashes/chills

Fever of 101.7

Dizziness/faint



My dr. is still on holiday vacation, I try to avoid the E.R at all costs, but what I've bought over the counter is not working (Mucinex)



So, is this the flu, or am I about to keel over? Both?



I fear I may have to go to the ER & sit with the Muggles :(



No smart ass answers or I'll scratch you out of the running for my gif/meme collection in my will.

You're not dying.....you're just a crybaby. Unfortunately, it's a chronic condition. : (      (can I have some of your stuff now please? )

Hello fellow sufferer. I can't believe how shitty I feel. Five days of shit. My chest is hurting less and I can actually cough today without crying. Fever is gone this afternoon, too. I may live, after all!

Urgent care? We have a place here that will call you when a spot opens up so you can wait at home.

It's the flu.  My SO and I both had it.  Keep up with the Mucinex, drink lots of liquids.  If you have a humidifier run it.  To help with the gagging couogh, use a Neti pot to flush your sinuses.  Snot trying to run down your throat is what's gagging you.

Lol I decided against the ER, I found an Urgent Care that I'll go to tomorrow.

Everything and mostly everyone's general consensus says flu, but I just want to be sure, with the shortness of breath/painful breathing...

I'll update when I know something.

 What about urgent care? It's like the ER but off-site.
I think I have bronchitis. I feel your pain.
