    I am so bummed. I have a terrible cold which forces me to stay home. I did see the doctor late yesterday for antibiotics and Alka Seltzer helps a little.

    I hate having a cold!! I wake up feeling terrible.

    Sorry, I just wanted to gripe here. I hope everyone else is escaping the cold and flu season...

    PVlady:
    I am sorry you have the cold. I just bought Alka Seltzer Plus cold medicine. I have seen it advertised on tv so much that I decided to give it a try.
    Yes, I am fighting a cold too.
    Sisters in misery we are.

    Also try the Zicam gel in your nose, it really does work. Put it in your nose every 2-3 hours and your cold will really go away sooner.

    Thanks. How are you doing? I just hate being inactive when I am sick. I think it being sedentary before made my fibro worse.

    Hope all is well...

    Someone else mentioned Zicam. When I get a cold I get soooo sick. Someone told me about Zicam, and I didn't believe a word of it. But, I went ahead and bought some. I do believe it does help.

    I felt like a cold was coming on just this week, and I started using it immediately - no cold.

    I had a cold a month ago - used it, and the cold only lasted a couple of days.

    Might be worth a try.
