    Feel really rough today :(. I started getting a sore throat and bad cough Monday night. Yesterday and today its come full on! Running nose, sneezing, coughing etc. Couldn't sleep last night coz of all the coughing and nausea! Is there anything we can take? I'm not big on medication anyway but the coughing is driving me mad!

    Oranges for vitamin c hunny. Try sleeping propped up with pillows to help with the coughing and take the weight off your chest. Drink plenty of water which will help the nausea. If you have a temperature you can take paracetomol but if you don't personally I wouldn't bother as it won't help much with the other symptoms

    Hope you feel better soon :hug: xxxxxxxx

    Thanks for the advice! Although I can't eat oranges, juicy fruit makes me sick :(
