Kicking the Never Ending Lurgy?
I feel your pain. I have always been uber healthy, one mild cold a year, but this year the winter chesty cough has been hell. Went on for 3 weeks, then seemed to get better for a couple of weeks, started some gentle bike riding again. And it’s back…. or it’s another cold.
Although I think my problems might be more about working with the public again and getting exposed to more germs.
I heartily recommend some kind of cough medicine. The more chemicals the better. It’s the only thing that helps me sleep.Posted 4 years ago
Right – getting sick of this recurring cold that heads straight down into my chest. It has been going on for weeks, and my other half keeps coming down with it too (though mine is being particularly unpleasant at the moment probably due to knackering myself out on Wednesday and then going to work on Thursday when I probably shouldn’t have been).
Any suggestions for kicking it so I can get out riding again? I suspect it is the product of being run down as I am plagued by ulcers in my mouth/tongue which started to clear up with Vitamin B complex, but I forgot to take it for a few days and they popped back out again.
My doctor seems pretty much useless, so not much point in going there (again)Posted 4 years ago
Well he has dibbs on his older brother’s bike. |His older brother (who’s three) should be about to move onto a Isla bike with pedals.
Problem is my eldest is in rude health and is still very keen on his red Spesh balance bike.
We do have a cat though so watch this space.Posted 4 years agojoemarshallMember
I used to always have colds, all winter. This year i have been swimming in rivers every week since september, without missing a week, and i feel like i’ve had far less bad colds. Extreme cold exposure is supposed to strengthen your immune system, although the evidence for that is slightly inconclusive. I might just be imagining it and feeling I am less sick because i feel more positive, it might all be a placebo effect, but i certainly feel stronger and better, so I don’t care!
Right now possibly isn’t the time to start, but i can recommend it for next year.Posted 4 years agogavtheoldskaterMember
its going around. both me and the wife have had stinking head colds for well over a week now, nothing drastically debillatating but just super snotty and a little on the chest. loads of people have same.
really nailed my training for the tri a week sun, with the air temp (snow flurrys yesterday, i live in west cornwall its supposed to be the midest part of the uk) and my shivering cycling has just been impossible and swimming… hell i tried again last night and i just can’t breath in the pool.Posted 4 years agohousehusbandSubscriber
I was just back on the bike several weeks ago after December, January and February off the bike with adult whooping cough. Now, just before Easter and the start of half-term holiday (yes, I’m a lazy-ass teacher) I get the cough that several colleagues and dozens of kids around whom I breathe have been passing around…
It has indeed been a tough, and very incessant, winter and ‘spring’… 👿Posted 4 years ago
