My fever broke last night about 4am. I was sweating like a Goat looking at Brother Been holding a rubber band.
Now I have the Trots. Having to go to the bathroom about twice an hour. I guess this bug is determined to get me from all sides.

Had one member call me this morning.....not to wish me well but wanted to know if I knew his wife.  :D :D :D
True story.  :D

I never thought I would say it.....it hurts to laugh.  :) :) :) Be glad when this ride is over.

Regarding the trots...if you are taking guaifenesin (Mucinex) as an expectorant for chest congestion, the medication could be causing that side effect.  Many common cold and flu remedies include this drug. 

I really do hope you feel better soon.   :)

I guess its finally my turn. I spent several days last week up north looking after my friend Lou after his return from surgery at Mayo, then came home Friday. Got up and went to a home builders show Saturday with Tammy, feeling totally worn out but not sick, then awoke Sunday morning with I guess the Flu. In my Chest and head, aches and pains, hurts to breath, and I have a temp. First I have been sick sick in a very long time.

I got it last year. I had a lot on the plate and tried to toughen up and work through it. The flu bug turned to pneumonia and the doc insisted on admitting me to the hospital. It took six weeks to get back to normal. I should have gone to the doc much sooner. David and Jeff, hope you're both feeling better soon!
