I've been running my vicks humidifier almost none stop since last Thursday. My supervisor sent me home from work yesterday. I had already a doctors appointment, omg aren't I'm glad I've been a sick camper. Diagnosed with upper respiratory tract infection and a Sinus infection. Rx 850mg amoxicillian antibiotics 2 x a day for 10 days, Rx robitusin cough syrup.
Last night was a HUMM-DINGGER for me after first anitial does I coughed all night long finally about 3:00am I dozed off to sleep, 6:30 alarm goes off for work.
Today at work same lots of HOT antioxidants & herbal teas, lemon & sugar free honey with sugar free cough drops in cups. NOW at home feeling a little better and a whole lot less cough & congestion Hallelujah.

Glad you are feeling better. That is not any fun, specially when it raises our glucose numbers. Have a speedy recovery!

Feel better, as you probably already know, antibiotics and sickness (infection) will probably raise your bg, so keep a close eye on that. Get well soon.

I hope you get well soon. I don't know where you are, but if you can get outside and sit in the warm sun, it might help with the way you feel.
