I've thought about it but even just the thought makes me sick.
I've been rubbing vics everywhere all day.

Try running hot water in the shower to get ur bathroom steamy and sit in there for a while. If u have a vaporizer try using that at night. The z pack should start making u feel better n a day or two. Hope u feel better soon.

A nasal cleansing system will get all the crap out that is causing problems it won't feel good at all at the time but it works wonders

BTW I know what you mean about doing a nasal flush but I was so sick once I tried it and was amazed that I felt 100 times better within the hour

The Z Pac should clear it up rather quickly, Are you taking Vitamin B6 for the nausea? Docs say it helps. I did Zofran and B6.  All you can do it really just drink lost of fluids and sleep when you can. I had mono once, and nothing will put you out like that I tell ya what. I had a 6 month old and I was near death and managed to will myself better and still nursed her. She didn't get much attention during the worst of it about a week. House didnt get cleaned and didnt go to work. But we all survived and she still had her booby milk. lol
