I read your post on Friday, the second day of a nasty bug. I followed your advice with the onion, thinking that it would break up the congestion. It didn't, but the next day I felt so much better. I'm still congested, but the fever chills and aches were completely gone. I don't think I've ever recovered from the flu so fast.
Man, it sounds like you caught that same crap the wife and I had a couple months ago. It felt like quivering fingers running up and down the windpipe. We got rid of it with the onions as well. But the congestion it left behind still hasn't disappeared. I now have a constant frog in my throat that won't come up but very rarely. And when and I finally force it at a minimum. It's sticky like silicone or something. I fear I'll never get rid of it.
Absolutely sucks. I've been calling it," The ZOMBIE virus " Glad the onions helped, but I don't know what to say
about the remainder except sooner or later, they'll come up with something that will do their dirty work..I believe that and this might end up being it. Hard to say what's going to happen next in the effed up parody of a world.
hope you have a full recovery
The more common name for coccidioidomycosis It's a rare lung infection caused by inhaling a fungus found in the soil and in the air Endemic areas in Arizona, California, Utah, New Mexico and Texas, plus Mexico and Argentina Two out of three infected people experience no symptoms Others get flu-like symptoms lasting a month One in 20 gets pneumonia and in one in 100 cases it infects the brain - with potentially fatal results Anti-fungal drugs can help but there's no cure
I live in Arizona and have had valley fever. Its symptoms, I had low grade fever and felt like an elephant sat on my chest. Some brown patches on my chest.
It eventually went away but took a few weeks.
This last month I was down all month, Swollen glands so bad almost blocked my airway, fever, joint pain inflammation, kidney pain and inflammation, High fevers to low body temps, High neutrophils, Low RBC count, cut in half my normal.Bloody diarrhea, dry cough, hard time breathing. .. Tested neg for flu and strep. No idea what it was. Glad I am still here.
Had to have an ambulance get me one night it was so bad.
My local doctor here in the small town in AZ said there is a very bad respiratory illness going around , that is really really bad and he had to put some patients in the hospital. He also said flu cases are now on the rise here. He tests everyone with symptoms for flu and strep.
