I have a miserable cold too. 3rd day, Afrin nasal spray helps for about 4 hours. I should have taken cold eeze when it started.
Nasty tight cough too. Thanksgiving is that time of year.

We can't even get Cold-EEZE here. Taking zinc tablets doesn't have the same effect, trust me, I've tried.
We have several OTC sprays with Afrin's active ingredient oxymetazoline, but that stuff carries a risk of rebound congestion caused by overuse and, for some people, a vicious cycle of overuse and dependence that feels like an addiction. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/14/health....html?_r=0
I know first hand, it's happened to me in the past. Breathing normally again after using it for a week was probably as bad as the cold.
Guess I'll tough it out on that, but there is cough syrup with codeine OTC that helps you to fall asleep.

You have no right to go to sleep if you don't have preps in the home.
No sympathy here.
I suggest chicken soup.

Bicarb soda.. Works everytime..

Quote:Day 1: take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water, six times a day, at about two-hour intervals.
Day 2: take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water, four times a day.
Day 3: take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water in the morning and in the evening.
After this initial period, take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water every morning until your symptoms are gone.

Dip a toothbrush in regular 3% hydrogen peroxide then straight into some bicarb soda and dab it around the tooth and gum etc.. Do it every hour.. Should work.. Can stop a tooth from falling out too..

Strange, I made a pot of refried beans with lots of Chipotle... was pretty spicy and I took some baking soda for indigestion last night, so I guess I've already started the program eh?

Hey NM! Happy Thanksgiving! Sorry to hear it, that's far worse than a cold, and generally requires spending a lot of money for a root canal or worse, getting it pulled gaah.gif
I feel for you, hope it works out as inexpensive as possible, and you have the best turkey day possible under the circumstances.

There used to be a thanksgiving of sorts here, but the church nixed it as pagan. From what I recall it was around September, harvest time, time to cut down the hemp.
There was a lot of THC in that wild hemp, so it wasn't really hemp at all. A friends grandmother used to work at the factory where they made rope from it, it was real sticky and made good rope.
She stood over a big vat of hot water and stirred the hemp in it to soften it up. She said she LOVED going to work. lmao.gif
Essentially she stood over a vaporizer all day.
