    Always carry Ricola Soothing - trying not to sound like an advert, but they really work.

    I found drinking orange juice all day helped me through when I had my cold recently. Are you taking your vitamin C Martin?

    I can't take medication to help due to current medication I have to take

    Get better soon. I hear Night Nurse will help you sleep so your body can fix itself.

    Good to see someone else using the word "flumping"!

    Ground root ginger mixed in with some warm orange juice is very good for the throat apparently... Get well soon.

    Get well soon. Too bad I didn't know you were going to be there, my mum would have popped over with some chicken soup. And a chat about money saving of course :-)

    Get some Vitamin C bombs down your neck - I swear by taking 3 x 1000mg tablets a day, I also take Echinacea tablets.

    These measures must work because I haven't even had the sniff of a cold since November 07

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Hope your feeling better.

    My daughter is getting over a virus that made her feel off balance and dizzy must be a lot of it going around.

    Hope your in bed with a hot water bottle.

    Feeling ill
    hi Martin, you could try a spoonful of honey to soothe your throat, just a teaspoon is enough.

    If possible before bed have a bath to relax you, and put just 1 drop of lavendar essential oil at the top of your bed -no more than 1 drop or it will keep you awake!! Its worth trying, I've used that with good results in the past.

    hope you are feeling better soon,
    Susan
