Does anyone please know of any remedy?
I had the H1N1 mist about a week ago, and then, with FULL warning of course, started feeling an exodus of symptoms. First came the backache, then my finger joints just felt sore, my muscles hurt like crazy, everything was out of whack - I had to ask my husband to give me a good massage right away. My whole body was on fire, it was unbelievable. Eventually, Extra Strength Tylenol quickly got rid of all that. (I still take it PRN/as necessary.) But then came this awful, awful sore throat that I can't shake off.
It is so bad I've had to apply Vicks on my neck and wrap a short kind of scarf around it TO and AT work for two nights now. I've been drinking hot tea, eating nothing but soup, and pumping up on vitamins and pain killers, to no avail. A friend suggested ginger. I'll probably have to drink the water I boil it in, I forgot to ask.
My throat feels swollen, (though I don't believe it is), and swallowing is extremely painful.
What a nightmare and a half.
