It appears (c'est une poire) that I am coming down with some form of flu (hopefully not the bird one) which manifests itself in the early stages by a sore throat and a light temperature but also clogged (not the toilet) ears.
Can this be quashed in these early stages as I am on holiday from this evening and do not wish to be sneezing with -2 degrees when in the Elbonia.

I fear if I take those quantities I may infact kill myself off.
I hope you people understand there is no DELICIOUS way of curing a soar throat. THe best which always works for me.... is pickle juice. Just get a shot of pickle juice, no jokes, and as much as you will gag and what not , it will go away.

Sore throat - the onset of a cold....Well, let me tell you something. With the horrible cold I just had it started with a sore throat, then quickly went to congestion which lasted for two weeks. Approx. 3 days after the sore throat a light cough started which went to a heavy hacking cough, the kind that keeps you awake at 2:36 in the AM, coughing as if a lung is trying to be expelled and never lets you get a good nights sleep. You'll never get any sleep for two weeks. I feel sorry for you.

Sorry to hear about your condition. Perhaps a bit of bed rest will do you good; if things are other than a simple cold, you may also wish to consult a doctor.
