    Need some advice girls and guys, I feel terrible I have a really deep painful cough although it is wet (TMI?) and now a sore throat from coughing. My whole body aches like I have flu. But It isnt that bad because I can still get up.

    What can I take for this, that is allowed on SS?

    Thanks

    You can take paracetamol and ibuprofen tablets, anything without sugar. But you may be able to get sugar free cough medicine, you'd have to ask in the pharmacy. Or sugar free cough sweets. They may have a few negligible calories but I think feeling better is more important than worrying about a handful of calories!

    Not sure about the CD stance...but i hear the tablets can make you a bit off colour anyway so worth trying to stick with it and see how you get on? Not sure!
    Hope you feel better soon though xxx

    Aw hun so sorry to hear you are feeling so poorly. I think the CD stance is that you need to move up to a plan with food as a minimum as your body needs the extra calories to help it fight infection but I am sure a CDC will be along soon.

    Look after yourself

    Ah poor onlyme, sorry to hear that its swine flu. I just know one person that had it at the beginning of August and fortunately he was feeling back to normal in a few days.
    Wishing you a speedy recovery x
