I have some sort of cold or other infection and cannot afford to miss classes or assignments this week. How can I alleviate the symptoms (or feel less miserable, at least) until I'm able to see a doctor? [more inside]
Hello fellow Metafilterians, now that allergy season is upon us, does anyone recommend the best OTC med for: pressure on the eyes, chest congestion, stuffy nose, and sore throat? It's much worse in the morning. Coughing up yellow awfulness (sorry, gross). Claritin and Mucinex-D do NOT work. Sudafed works like a charm but knocks me out, literally for 2 days. Not sure what's out there, haven't had allergies in a couple of years.
I'm in the Bay Area, supposed to fly to New York tomorrow morning. For the past few days I've had moderately crappy sinus congestion. What can I do to make the flight as comfortable as possible? [more inside]
Sinus congestion is making me very unhappy. What works for you? [more inside]
Can you help my nasal congestion? [more inside]
Nasal congestion on waking... A few possible causes, but a lot of them are ruled out. [more inside]
