    Anyone else have whatever sickness is going around??


    I've been sick for what seems like 2 weeks, and I don't seem to be feeling any better. I've had a constant low fever, clogged sinuses, constant fatigue, and morning headaches. I've been doing the Benadryl/Advil/water treatment but things just don't seem to be getting any better!

    Whatever this cold/flu/bug is, it's not fun. If you know/see anyone who has it STAY AWAY!! 3 people in my house have had it so far and it has taken everyone a really long time to get over.

    This is the time of year when I double up on my methyl-B12 dosage to prevent this type of sh*t.

    Don't know where u guys are located but i'm here in CT and I just got sick, caught it from a friend and now we're all sick, me, my bro and my friend and his g/f. It really sucks having your sinuses congested, nose running, headache, and aching muscles. Of course this has to happen during finals! I can't concentrate on studying when I have to blow my nose every 2 secs.

    I had it for about a day and a half last week.

    Now, I am not just a bodybuilder, but also a general health nut, and I don't preach, but I will tell you the supps/food I was using to get over it fast:

    vitamin C (I take daily anyhow....bump up to 500mg at least 10 times a day when I feel sick)
    selenium (50mcg twice daily)
    COQ10 (60mg 3x daily)
    fresh minced garlic (teaspoon w/every meal)
    ACV (great idea...as someone suggested...mixed 50/50 w/ginger ale, I sip a glass of it throughout the day and gargle w/pure ACV)
    astragalus (500mg twice daily)
    elderberry (650mg twice daily)
    reishi mushroom powder (1g twice daily)

    And only at the initial onset of symptoms, I take 1/2 tsp of glycerin-based echinacea extract every few hours.

    ....that's basically it. What I am going for is a fairly cost-effective and proven bunch of things to fight sickness. I don't buy questionable "fad" supps and whatnot.

    My wife got sick a couple weeks back and I got it the next night. We are both fighting it but I just can't seem to get rid of it. I think it is finally starting to clear up but I usually never get sick and if I do it's never as long as this time was.

    Sounds like the Adenovirus I had a month or so back. Low grade fever that gets worse at night and just a long, drawn out crappy cold.

    I think my tonsils are shot because I have been sick a record 6 times since November which is unheard of for me. Supplements pull me out of it each time but then a few weeks later, I get knocked down again. Sucks.
