My son came home sick from the sitters Wed Dec 20th. he had a fever the highest point was 103.1. Thursday I got up running a fever. I stayed home from work. Friday I got up and went in (I'd miss my holiday pay if I didnt) and Friday I really felt *OK*. Haha. Friday evening I got sicker than I have been in a long time, since when I had light pneumonia. I ran a fever so high my body had a reaction to it and I broke out in hives from head to toe I even had them in my ears and hair. I was real bad sick up until this past weds and started feeling some better but began throwing up at night. mind you this is every night now for whatever reason and it is Saturday!! Its been a week and a half and Im still coughing too. No fever though. Its going to take me forever to get back to my normal pain filled life, lol. The dr gave me hycodan though and I am taking this bottle to my rheumy on my next appointment because honestly I had NO PAIN in my muscle groups when I was taking this stuff for cough/flu symptoms! I know it has hydrocodone in it but it also has some other type of anti-tussive and I could NOT believe how much better I felt taking this stuff! Just wanted to share.
