    You got it as well? My mum said its flu as never had that before but i feel its more. My doctors isnt open today so cant even go and get a prescription

    I've got it, so do my Dad, sister & cousin. Christmas dinner was much fun at ours yesterday. Never had flu before but I guess that's what I've got now.

    £50 test...... if a £50 note is sat in the garden, would you go out and pick it up?

    Yes - Bad cold
    No - Flu!

    I bet it was fun Already had 6 pints of water this morn and think ive lost about the same thru coughing

    My OH is the same, but he has fever and chills too, been this way for a couple of days now, hoping he gets better soon, 2 nights ago he was absolutely roasting to the touch but shivering cos he felt cold, although he doesn't have a running nose yet, just the cough/fever/chills/aches.

    I have got a cough and cold.

    Enjoying drinking cough medicine instead of baileys at the moment.

    ive had this for the past 3 days, someone told me to pick up some day nurse liquid and im not kidding you it works wonders, i couldnt eat as i didnt have an appetite however it got rid of my shivers my aches and pains and my sorethroat and cough, made it through xmas day alot better than it would have been however it has a really nasty taste to it but its on sale in asda for £4 aswell

    Everyone- Try honey in hot water.... always does the job for me.... hope you get well soon

    I've got it too had it since wed, never felt as ill in my life. Spent yesterday alone in bed and have not managed to eat more than a few mouthfulls since Thursday. Thought I was getting better but coughed all night long just can't shake it. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

    Just dose up on paracetamol, thats the only way you can help ease the symptoms.

    Hope I am better for new years eve, but my OH has started feeling poorley now.

    Took me 40mins to walk about a half mile journey with stopping and got a taxi back lol, Woman in boots said i look really bad and she was gorgeous lol

    I had a slight cold a few weeks back but I put my back out and the muscle pain stopped me coughing or sneezing for a couple of days. The slight cold then took hold and I have been coughing ever since. I felt that it just needed time to clear, but in the end I went to the GP. I am now a few days into a course of antibiotics and the cough has receded somewhat. Still got quite a cold though.
    Keep taking plenty of fluids and paracetemol and lots of rest.
    If the symptoms dont resolve maybe its worth seeing the GP. I am glad I did now as although I thought I had things under control in truth it was just dragging on and the coughing was making me really exhausted and pulling muscles in my chest.

    My friend has been in hospital with Swine flu over xmas.
    I had these same symptoms last week, was so hot, but shivvering, Hubby sent me to bed as no matter how many duvets and layers I had on I could not stop shivvering.
    I had it real bad for 3 days, then past it to my son.

    Problem is we never see the need to see a DR if we feel rough so never really know what we had.

    Hope you get better soon, Loads of this going round. Its not nice at all x

    I've started to get ill :x getting a cold & can't swallow, going to have a few large amaretto's to make me feel better

    I actually feel like I am on the mend today, still feel dizzy and coughing a bit, the chills have stopped and I feel like i have slightly more energy. Managed to force down a hot cross bun. My worry now is work, should of worked christmas day but obviously didn't, guessing will be slated because of that. Due back to work wed but at the moment don't feel that I have enough energy to do 3 shifts in a row, worried about going back and making my self worse...
