    I have some serious congestion, sore throat, and a throbbing headache. What are your best remedies for getting over a cold/sickness fast?

    Sore Throat:
    - Make some tea and put some honey in it
    - Chicken soup

    I don't really have anything for headaches (only to massage your temples or put a cold cloth on your head) or congestion, sorry.

    ((These help me when I have a sore throat or headaches so sorry if it doesn't work.))

    I have had severe headaches throughout my life, and have been hospitalized 7 times in the last 4 years for said headaches. All I do when I get them is shut my lights off put on some very slow and quiet music and stare at the ceiling and try to fall asleep. If I am really having a hard time sleeping I will just sit in my comfy chair and play a relaxing game on mid brightness with sunglasses on (mid tint). You will look like an idiot if you do the second one. I would say take tylenol, but I can't say if it works or not, because my body became addicted to the shit after taking two a day for like my entire 8th grade year.

    If I'm feeling down, a joint usually makes it bareable, if thats not available I just take a painkiller.

    For your congestion, you can take Mucinex DM, that will help break the congestion up. Drink some hot tea with honey in it, Gatorade for your electrolytes, and some water as well. For your throat, you can take some cepacol drops, it will numb up your throat to help you swallow things if needed, but it will "calm" your throat down. Lastly, for your headaches, take some advil or excedrin. Hope it all helps and that you feel better soon.

    I usually eat ice cream to help with the sore throat, put on a movie, eat some oatmeal and eventually fall asleep. When I wake up I normally feel a lot better and my immune system sucks.

    I was about to say this as well. I recently have discovered Mucinex DM and it works wonders. Make sure to get the DM, as there are many different types of Mucinex.

    Something that I'm sure you've heard and will help all these symptoms is to keep hydrated. Drink plenty of water!

    Congestion - Any menthol/vapour rub will help. Either on the chest or in hot water (put it in a bowl and have the bowl on your lap using a towel over your head to create a sort of sauna for your face but close your eyes and breathe it in. This will ease congestion).

    Sore throat - Avoid dairy such as ice cream - chew on ice or drink cold iced water if you want a numbing sensation for your throat. Again drink water and avoid hard foods if it's too painful.

    Throbbing headache - Get plenty of rest if this is a continuous thing and along with the water it should ease.

    Take medication such as paracetamol or ibuprofen but ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory so paracetamol is almost always more effective for headaches and sore throats. I'm not sure what you guys call paracetamol in America if it isn't the same as here. Don't take more than 8 tablets in a 24 hour period (2 x 500mg every 4-6 hours up to 4 times, no more.)

    Hot water with honey and lemon is good for soothing sore throats and combating the infection. Also make sure you take your temperature to make sure you don't have a fever.

    Sorry this is long I genuinely love giving advice on this shit.

    Just wait out the ride, drink sprite or gatorade, water, keep yourself entertained, and sleep. But who the fuck drinks water? am I right?:laughing:
