Not Feeling Well

I wasn't feeling well last night. Headache was killing me, and my throat felt like it was on fire. I used one of those cooling headache pads on my forehead and went to bed at around 10-10:30..

I woke up at 2:00am with muscle and bones aching, fever, headache, sore throat and ears' pain... I felt nauseous! I did not want to bother my parents since they are not feeling well, so I ended up calling my lil sister on her cell and she came in to the rescue. She gave me Panadol Cold & Flu, massaged my head... but I was nowhere near feeling any better, so at around 2:40am we decided to go to the ER.

I arrived with 38.6C fever, by the time I was in the examination room, my temperature was 39.5C. The doctor decided to give me some glucose or Panadol drip (I am not sure/cant really remember) and an injection. I was there till after 5:00am, dead tired and so weak. They managed to get my temperature down and released me with a two days rest note for work. I even suggested to go back to work on Monday if I get better, and the doctor said that I shouldn't. He even said I may need to come back if I dont get any better.

I went back home... the sun was almost up, I went back to bed and slept till 2:40PM!!!!! My mom just came in to check on me, and she said that her and dad came numerous times to check on me but I just did not move... She said my dad even stayed a while with me, tried to talk to me but with no response LOL!

My ears are still killing me, I have no appetite to eat anything (and acidity reflux is not helping)... but I have to since I have some medications to take! Ughhhh! I dont like being sick!

Weee my dear ma itshofeen shar

Get well soon...

I get flus 10 times a year. Once each month...

Fa i have two remedies...

#1 bring one whole ma6arat chai awsad, 3seer one lemon, o garshat 3asal...

O drink all the ma6ara with 3asal o laimoon... it is the best

but i cannot use it anymore as my body reacts violently to tea and honey when im sick

2nd remedey?

I tried it multiple times. It works

My friend who was pregnant o couldnt take flu medication o it worked for her too

Remember an email once sent? About an onion and sugar?

You make a groove in a white onion, o put inside it one teaspoon of sugar, leave it overnight

Next morning drink the juice forming out of it...

Sounds yucky i know, smells bad, but tastes 100% sugar i swear no traces of onion at all o makes u better in a few hours... u won't lose a thing try it and see...

Daddy's Girl said...

eeee o 3laj 3atheem b3d if the previous two did not come to ur liking... my brother gave me that one...

Hot milk (preferably semi skimmed) with fresh ginger and honey... u will feel heat emitting from ur body as u drink it and it will soothe u instantly

O ako '3ar'3ara for the bala3eem its colored blue very very good it will make the pain in ur throat disapppear but not the flu

Daddy's Girl-
eshar mayeech, I do go for that onion remedy, and its helpful sara7a... I do similar tea to yours (its a bit of both, the tea and milk remedies you gave)
It goes:
boiling water, adding ginger and cinnamon sticks. Remove from stove, add lemon juice and fresh mint leaves... a homemade antibiotic hehehe
