I'm about to go down stairs and buy a sprite and coke.
Since you work out, think of it this way.

Imagine not eating for a day or two, then going to the gym. How are you going to feel an hour afterwards? I will have a hunger headache and some other stuff going on.

It's the same general idea, just multiplied with the shitty feeling from being sick. Other than toast, you could also consider soups as well (Or, even, soup and toast!). Chicken noodle or tomato soup may seem to come up repeatedly with respect to sickness, but it's for a reason. They work. It's also incredibly important to hydrate as well, at least in my experience.

Glad I'm not the only freak here who uses a neti pot lol. Also, though you are stuck at a hotel, try not to eat anything processed. Bad in general, but definitely not good when you are trying to heal.

Make sure you eat/drink plenty of water. There's gotta be something that sounds good to eat, so go down to walmart and get it. If you're taking sudafed or anything like that, you'll have to hydrate even moreso. Anyways, get as full on food/water as you comfortably can and take a good dose of sleep aids. Wake up 12 hours later, take a hot shower to loosen up the sinuses, go win at life.

Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate. Your in the Army right? You should always be hydrated, pretend your in basic training again and you HAVE to drink sh*t loads of water. Drink slowly if you think you'll puke, puking is the enemy of staying hydrated, so don't puke. Hydrate.

This has been going around in our area. Its nasty. Comes on with headache and follows with 24 hrs of violent vomiting.

If you go into work with this. You are an a$$. It seems to be easily passed around.

Nyquil, a quart of water and 8-10 hours sleep. Get up and slam another quart of water at 2AM, repeat Nyquil. Get up feeling all better.

No choice on that front. Not my decision. I'm just that important.

The headache is owning me right now. I've got the sinus pressure almost gone, I ended up blowing my nose a crap ton and all the green mucus came out and since then the pressure is gone, and my whole nose area feels better. I have Nyquil on stand bye and will drink a quart of water before sleeping.

Well just downed my Nyquil. Drinking massive amounts of water and then watching videos until I pass out. Will report in the morning. If nothing is better I will have to try the crazy nepi thing or whatever it's called.

Are you at a full-service hotel? They should have no problem bringing you unseasoned chicken and rice... plain white rice and a plain white chicken breast. You need to eat through this thing. Pull chicken breast apart and consume in very small bites.

Airborne... you need to be popping one every few hours into your water. I like the orange flavor.

Neti-pot for the win. Any drug-store Walgreens/RiteAid will have a few... be sure to get some of the little packets of salt stuff that goes in the water. Don't wait on this one... get one right away and start flushing.

While you're at Rite-Aid, get a humidifier... or get 2. Put them on either side of your bed and turn the AC off... you want to get the room up to like 100% humidity while you sleep.

And grab some Breathe-Right strips... nothing in the science with these, but I always sleep a little better when I'm a bit stuffed up.

I like to stuff a tissue in the nostril that is congested, not kidding, really helps me sleep.

Good news. Woke up feeling pretty awesome. Starving and thirsty, but not sick. I could feel the Nyquil working basically as soon as I took it. My sinuses opened up and my nose was running like crazy. Feel asleep with my face in the pillow so that was kind of a mess. I still have a bit of a headache. I think once I eat breakfast and get some more liquid in me I'll feel good. Just glad I didn't have to do a nepi pot. I'm definitely keeping that in my book for future sickness.

Being sick is terrible. I don't remember the last time I was sick. I managed to not even get sick the entire time I was in Afghanistan. Oh well. Thanks for the advice, next time I start to get sick I'll be prepared.

take remedies, not immunity boosters.

I forget where I read (several places) but recent studies are suggesting that trying to boost your immune system AFTER you're sick can potentially increase duration and severity of colds. You want your body to do all the work and build up its own strength against infection.

Dope up on sudafed, afrin, whatever you want. But skip the airborne, zinc, echinacea, etc.

Also one of the biggest contributors to poor health is cortisol--the stress hormone.

Go into work and fu ing deal with it you wussy bitch!

Whenever I have customer meetings I NEVER can call out sick. No matter how sick, tired, and hungover/drunk I am I will always show up and have my A+ game.

That said if your sinuses are fu d then go to CVS/walgreens and get some real deal decongestant. 12 hour Pseudoephedrine. It will be with the Pharmacist probably (no scrip needed) because people use that shi to make meth. Take one of those and your sinuses will clear up.
