    Aww Jodie,
    sorry to hear you're not feeling well..

    Do you have any of the st Clements water flavouring? If so have it hot with a couple of painkillers, will be like a lemsip..

    Oh and get those packs down ya girl! :p

    Hope you feel better soon

    I echo what Geri has said, paracetamol, and a hot drink. (I dont like St Clements but the forest fruits is lovely hot.)

    Hope you feel much better soon.

    Watch what pain killers you have- some have citric acid in, as I found out to my cost!! (soluble ones)

    I think Lemsip capsules are ok, as they don't have any sugar or citric acid in.

    Hiya

    I really identify with you at the mo , cos I am sick too ! Aching all over runny nose and a cough that keeps waking me up , it makes you miserable dont it?
    I told my LLC last night and she suggested the following

    Make your own Lemsip with the st clememts water flavouring and hot water with paracetamol.

    No sugar cough medicine that they sell for diabetics I found a great one at my chemist I had the lady check for sugar and citric acid apparently they list Citric acid as something very chemically sounding on medicines sorry cant remember the name but you definately dont want it because it will knock you out of Ketosis and affect your weight loss. The one I got was called PAVACOL D and it tastes nice like old fashioned cough sweets!

    She also suggested puting the water flavouring in a hot cup of tea and its amazing ! I used earl grey with fruits of the forest and its really helped me soothes my throat and cough and makes me feel calmer too, its lovely. You can use any old tea and whichever flavouring you use it makes it llike a fruit tea which obviously we cant have.

    Also a steam inhaler with something like Olbas Oil in will help with stuffys and completely calorie and badie free!
    Good luck , hope you find these usefull and shake off the lurge soon!

    Going back to bed now
    Love Carole

    Anyone who has a cough I asked chemist for diabetic cough medicine as there is no sugar in it and was recommended by the lipotrim pharmasist.
