SOOO Sick...Somebody HELP Please!!! :-(

So my kids all came down with a cold this weekend. Nothing awful, just a cough and runny nose. Well, now I have it and I have it 10 times worse than any of them did. I'm coughing so hard I'm vomiting and i feel like my throats been ripped apart. I can't sleep at all even though I'm exhausted because if I'm not sitting up stick straight, I start hacking away again till I can't breathe. Called the doctor, they said take Robitussin DM and Sudafed. Tried that. Doesn't seem to help at all, if anything it's worse. I go to the doctor Thursday, but I can't go that long like this, I'm miserable and exhausted. Anyone have any ideas for what I can take or do???

have you tried a neti pot? Those things are major lifesavers for me when I have severe congestion.

Honestly, the congestion I could live with, if the coughing would stop! lol

maybe try a humidifier? I think I read that garlic is good for congestion too...not sure. Sorry! Hope you feel better soon!!

How about a tea with honey to coat your throat?
