our little community has lost several members the past couple of weeks.
Always hard to deal with.
As for the chills and fever...ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, etc.) or plain old aspirin
or acetaminophen (Tylenol) will help...if rather high fever, rotate the dosage...
one dose take APAP or ASA, next 4 hours take ibuprofen (APAP=acetaminophen
ASA=aspirin)...chicken noodle soup helps, good "comfort food"...any other
symptoms such as cough or congestion? If so, a good expectorant such as
guaifenesin (Robitussin, Mucinex) breaks up chest crud, if excess cough
accompanies it try one with the "DM" added. Orange juice is good to keep
yourself hydrated, as well as boost Vitamin C intake at same time.
Get well! Wiz
