Subject: BS: The Infection From Hell
From: SINSULL
Date: 30 Nov 08 - 04:58 PM

I was tempted to put this under folklore.
Two weeks ago I started getting a sore throat. Then I got one along with an infection that has gone into first my eyes and sinuses, then ears, back to sinuses...you get the picture. I have had one round of antibiotics which has eliminated all but the sore throat and the ear infection.
This is a nightmare. green and yellow stuff from every orifice. Eyes glued shut with it. Cough Cough Cough. Fever. Infected throat - very colorful and nasty.

Anyone else enjoying this particular strain? I had a flu and pneumonis shot. I take my vitamins.

WHIIIIIIINNNNNNE

Antibiotics will not treat a viral or fungal infection. For what antibiotics will treat - amoxycillin is good. I had chronic otitus media and otitus externa as a child, and my ears remain susceptible to infection, 55 years on. I've tried them all. I have also found that for linked dental/ear infections metronidazole is good but do NOT drink alcohol with it - it is chemically related to antabuse and a bad reaction can kill you.

Do NOT settle for a 5 day course. Re-infection is much more likely. Do a 7 or 10 day course (and double the very first dose to get a kick-start) and FINISH THE COURSE.

Ear pain can be absolutely deadly. If you can get Diconal, it will relieve it and it is safe in high doses, but it can be addictive and it has a high street value. It is very hard to get. Do not drive while taking it. Trust me on this.

I am not a doctor, but I have paid my dues when it comes to ear infections (and, indeed, teeth).

Mary, if you eat 3 lobster's a day, big lobsters, not those 2 pounders either, for 7 days straight (you don't have to eat them in 1 sitting), you won't have to worry about your throat, eyes, ears or sinuses anymore & you'll be able to keep the costs under $100. Are lobsters still just under $4 a pound? Before starting on this endevor make dam sure the plumbing's in good condition.
Good luck & all my best & sorry you're in such misery

The flu shot last year was a bad deal.
Having worked in the program when I was in the Air Force, it's SUPPOSED to work like this:
'Sentinal' clinics test people with flu-like symptoms including a fever of 101°F or higher.
The samples are sent to the CDC who figure out what strains, what antigen shifts and drifts are going around.
They develop the next year's vaccine based on that.
Last year, they got it wrong and we got nailed with a flu virus that we didn't expect. (They maybe should've named it the 'Spanish Inquisition Flu'?)

Even when the predictions work, there are other types of flu out there. Mary, you sound like you got nailed with one of them. Incidentally, the flu shot doesn't work immediately, so you could be incubating the flu and come down with it before the shot gets your antibodies up to effective levels.

I'm lucky so far. I haven't had the flu since I was a kid. It helps not to hang around with people who have multi-colored snot dripping from various orifices. Yeah, and I was up there two weeks ago! Hope you didn't give Gordon the nasal clap crap!

Mary, you don't have to listen to all their crap, do the lobsters, for christsakes, you're in Maine! Dam downeasters, they won't give away any of their secrets, bastards. They want it all for themselves. Next thing you'll be hearing about is chicken soup. How far's the nearest chicken farmer an' how far's the nearest lobsterfolk? See! Many of the folk believe that for medical finds, all you need to do is use what's closest to you, nature will provide what's needed. I'd advise you to cook the lobster in a hole in the ground, line it with hot rocks, once you have the hole lined with the hot rocks toss on the lobsters & then cover them over with fresh, still damp seaweed. The heat from the rocks coming in contact with the moist seaweed will cause the lobster to steam cook. Don't let this valuable steam go to waste, sniff it, really, sniff it like it's the last bit of fresh air you're ever gonna sniff. EVen better if you can get a blanket & cover yourself in a way that you yourself are getting a bit steamed too. The native indians swore by this treatment! That's why they cooked lobsters inside their teepees, they went for the natural thing whole hog. No, I didn't mean you should invite a hog, whole or not under the blanket with you. As for those chickenshits who'd advise you otherwise let them make soup when they're sick, you do lobsta. If after a couple of these treatments you're feeling better you might want to, for faster relief, try adding to on or onto, the sides of the lobsters some fresh clams (DEAD ONES are no good) & some fresh ears of local corn (Indian corn is the best) & try drinking some 'woad', don't do applecider, espically if it's aged. Hey. the pilgrams survived & knew that the Indians weren't nobody's fool. So follow tradition don't be a New Yorker all your life, sniff, become a downeaster, what's Kendall do when he gets under the weather? See, he stays sick doesn't he, he doesn't do this, probably drinks chicken soup, chicken shit. I'm giving you the best advise available, I know this because I have survived much worst & lobster is the only natural thing on earth that'll see you through, Amen, sorry aMan.

As Bogey said to Bacall, wait wasn't that whistle, sorry swallow anyway? Anyway, you can't get to be a true down-easter, Easter? Did someone say Easter? Sorry You can't become a downeaster if you don't learn to do a lobster, actually that'll even disqualify you from ever even becoming a true New Englander, eating lobster is a must do type of hing, if you don't you'll never ajust to the climate that the rest of us were born into & you'll get sick all the time. A lobster a day'll keep the sniffles away,,,. Clam up & gulp it down, be brave, be a real woman, be a New Englander, be a Downeaster, be a real Mainy-e-ax, you want ta wine, go light some candles & put on some soft music, you want to be cured go do a lobster, "shuck an' swallow" (kinda like 'rock & roll') a raw oyster & shove a pearl up ya nose, lay down in a stream of steamin seaweed & pull the blanket over ya face & squeeze the eyes out of an octupus' head & snort the black ink & you'll feel 100% better. You'll also get into the Guiness world record book as an aside & 100's of forelorn lobster/fishermen with accordians & banjo's will be trolling for ya. At least you be rid of the sniffles.

Neti pot.

From your description there may not be much room at first for water to flow through your sinuses, but if you are tempted by the offer of something that does actually work, a pot full of well-salted warm water in one sinus and out the other (over a sink and breathe through your mouth) is a great way to wash crud out of there. Just be sure you have plenty of salt in the water. (Ask me how I know. . . )

Don't let anyone suggest you can run it in one ear and out the other to clear out ear snot. (I've never even heard of that, let alone seen it, and won't offer any suggestions.) But the sinuses can be soothed with the good ol' neti pot. And eat chicken soup. Drink hot herbal tea. And there is a Celestial Seasonings tea called "Throat Soother" (they may have changed the name, but it was that brand) that had stuff like slippery elm bark and it really does help the sore throat.

Get well soon!

This thread not giving me much hope. Developed a cold 2 and half weeks ago. Thought I was getting well this Friday past.

Then 2am Saturday it came back with vengence. Fever (highest)102.4 and convulsive chills and then sweats and then chills again. Been dry heaving since Saturday, because sinus, throat and lungs feel furred up with phlegm and coughing does not dispel it. What little I get up is only clear, frothy, so not infected yet. Panting like a dog, short of breath, severe head and neck ache. Chest muscles and rib cage tired from the coughing and dry heaves, throat raw as well.

GP has cancelled my flu jab twice because I am too unwell to have it. Won't give me antibiotic because 1)there is no sign of infection so it must be viral and 2) if it does eventually go nuclear I am allergic to every - flipping - thing.

My immune system has been zotzed by couple of years chemo for Rheumatoid Arthritis. Think I am in serious trouble here. Going to GP tonight, but s/he notorioulsy reluctant to prescribe anything because of my allergies. I lost my list of meds I am allegic to as well. Now must reconstruct the list from memory at a time when my brain is clearly not funcitoning well.

Let's see can't have any cillins and cephalosporins, aspirin, ibuprofen, sulfa drugs, some decongestants.


Is there a doctor in da house? Think I will start eating the raw onions again. Actually helped a lot at the beginning of the cold.

Garlic.

I'm allergic to penicillin and a LOT of antibiotics, and garlic supplements (back in those days I could get garlic & parsley tabs reasonably cheap -- I took 13 a day and heavied up when I really needed it) have pulled me out of bronchitis and some other nasty infections.

Add more garlic to the chicken soup.

Garlic is good.

Barry - Mary's in enough of a shitty mood right now without forcing lobster down her throat. Trust me, you think she's bad before morning coffee? That would be mild compared to her mood if she had to sniff lobster steam and then eat the little darlings and we live within a ten mile radius, which means that we would get the fallout, as would the rest of the Greater Portland area.

She's finally going to the doctor's today to have a strep test and, hopefully, get some further treatment to help her recover. If necessary I'll cook up some real chicken soup, not the stuff in the cans, and take that round to her to see if that helps. It generally seems to help Kendall and me when we get knocked down by the dreaded lurgy.

Mary here is the real reason for your feelings just change the country :)

I'm TIRED

Yes I'm tired.

For some time now I've been blaming it on advancing age, poor blood, lack of vitamins, air pollution, the ozone hole, saccharin, obesity, dieting, foot odour, yellow wax build-up in the ear, the after effects of ever-lengthening long hikes, and other maladies that make one wonder if life is really worth living.

But I found out that it ain't any of the above.

I'm tired because I'm overworked!

The population of the country (Ireland) is 4 million.
1 million are retired.
That leaves 3 million to do 'the work'.
There are 1 million are too young, or in school and college.
That leaves 2 million to do 'the work'.
750,000 are unemployed or staying at home, and 250,000 are directly employed by the government.
That leaves 1 million to do 'the work'.
200,000 are in the armed or security forces, 200,000 are employed by County Councils, leaving 600,000 to do 'the work'.
There are 420,000 people in hospitals, and 179,000 in prison.

That leaves 2 people to do 'the work'.

I've had recurring eye infection since last winter. This time I not only got the antibiotic eyedrops, I've been following advice I found re demodex living in the eyelashes and tea tree oil to kill them. You have to be careful about diluting the tea tree oil enough to not burn the eyes. I added few drops to a jar of eye makeup remover pads and use that to scrub eyelids and eyebrows before bedtime. I use stronger tea tree oil on cotton on the rest of the face. It seems to be helping.

Then again, maybe he was just crazy.Not knowing where I was going to sleep would do that to me.

If he hadn't spit at me he could have slept at my house. Now I am tempted to invite him and suggest that he let Alice sleep with him. I am feeling better.

But i am still keeping a list. Some of you are in deep trouble.

Look, you can send the homeless asshole to me.....I'll take him. Just have him bring about 25 or 30 pounds of lobster with him. Other shellfish are acceptable as well as squid, sea bass............

The homeless guy was just being silly--he had no business staying so far North this time of year and he feelt guilty. By rights he shoulda been in Miami a month ago.
