    so yesterday, I woke up like any normal day, and WHAM!!! I regained consciousness to a cold of epic proportions. This thing hit me like a freight train. No pre-emptive attack, no warning. Both sinus cavities completely blocked, no air moving in or out. chest full of phlegm, throat burning to the point that I thought I would bleed if I kept coughing. Systematic headaches, delerium, dizziness, I feel as if God decided that I needed a smiting...


    and to top it all off, for some reason it's making me urinate every half an hour. Please explain this one...




    *UUUUGGGHHHHH* I'm gonna go die... be back in an hour.

    A similar thing has been happening to me, although somewhat frequently and less severely. Generally when it happens, I'll wake up feeling just fine, then I'll just suddenly start feeling dizzy, nauseated, and extremely congested at about 9:15 with no warning whatsoever. It's happened to me 3 or 4 times this winter

    Could be the flu, Icon. It hits very suddenly like that. Colds tend to come on more slowly.
    Do you have a fever?

    Flu hits within 24 hours. I got it last monday. I woke up perfectly fine and got to bed the same day with my whole body aching.

    I'm in the end of it now, my sinuses are full of water, instead.:confused:

    I felt that way once. It took me out for two weeks. The first week I thought it was a severe cold, and the second week we found out it was bronchitis.

    The worst part was hearing the phlem when I was trying to sleep. It kept me up for whole nights.

    Also, bury a nickel under a pine bough during a full moon to get rid of warts.
