Topic - Sooo...I have the flu
Posted: January 12 2014 at 12:15pm By Penham
Jen, fortunately the head congestion is almost all gone. The first 24 hours it was horrible, I could not breath through my nose, the headache was so bad 800mg of prescription ibuprofen was not touching it. A few hours after the first dose of Tamiflu the headache stopped. I never had any wheezing, just chest tightness, that probably was helped from the Prednisone, Z-pack and Albuterol/steroid breathing treatments at home. I am also taking about 4 or 5 other meds too. So hitting this very hard and so far it seems to be working. I have been up and out of bed most of the day, but not doing anything but watching tv, that is the hardest part, not doing anything when you start feeling better.
It came on very quickly, I had gone out to dinner with my ex and taken him to the airport because his dad passed away, went to work and was feeling just fine. During the course of my 8 hour shift I went downhill quickly and went straight to the doctor after getting off at 8:00am. 24 hours after the first doctor visit I got worse and went to the ER, that was when they did the flu test and gave me the Tamiflu.
