TQC, I cannot get rid of this head cold. Last night I was up every 30-45 minutes, I was just so uncomfortable. I don't know how much I slept - I know I slept a little but it wasn't like normal. This is every night since Tuesday now. I'm dragging around the house unable to do anything. How should I spend my evening?|
A. Go to bed now, with a book or something, and hope sleep eventually knocks me out for a while, and then wake up every hour until 4:00 and then give up and get out of bed.
B. Watch the Ten Commandments on network TV until I actually get sleepy. Then repeat (A) until 4:00.
C. Take some Benadryl, let my head dry out, try to deal with the resulting burning sore throat all night, do A or B.
D. Other (suggestions?)
Things that are not working: decongestants, hot drinks, iced drinks, avoiding dairy, neti pot.
Things that help, but only slightly: advil, benadryl (but that causes more irritation), anaesthetic throat spray (very temporary).
Things that make it even worse: yoga, lying down.
