Lol at the tena ladies

My 2 youngest kids are both off school this week with it. They have both had incredible high temperatures which have been really hard to lower. DD has got a cough and really tired, but ds 11 has got the cough, cold, heavy/tired bones and is just generally whacked. Dd has perked up a lot today but ds keeps getting a bit better but then his temperature rises and he is back to square one.

Hope your better soon

My son has been ill for over 4 weeks now with similar symptoms , so much so he is having blood test to see if he has glandular fever ( which did not show in thd first test ) the doctor did say that there is this horrible virus that shows the same symptoms of glandular fever and pretty much has the same recover time going around . It had effected him so much some days I cant get him out of bed and has caused major isues at school as he is in his last few months and doing his gcse . Hope any obe that has it gets well quickly we where just told to take paracetamol , drinj lots and above all Rest .

Thankfully I didn't feel achy or have any sweats, but in early December I had a dreadful cough which lasted about 6 weeks

Hope you're feeling better soon Jeanette

I had the same thing before Christmas. The cough lasted 10 weeks, I've never had anything like it before. Hope you feel better soon.

Hope you feel better soon, Jeanette. There are lots of bugs going around at the moment, touch wood I have avoided them even though I'm exposed every day at work

DD got a cough last July that had her coughing until she threw up. It lasted until November despite 3 different courses of antibiotics

I am absolutely 100% certain that she had whooping cough but the doctor refused to give a diagnosis so we will never be sure.

Hope you all feel better soon

I'm currently on a GP placement, and literally every other patient we're seeing is presenting with this horrible virus thing that's going around!!

It's a viral thing, and so we are sending a lot of people away without antibiotics as they'd just do more harm than good with side effects of diarrhoea etc. (sorry, too much information there ) But people who are susceptible to chesty things and smokers, asthmatics etc. etc. then we are seeing them come in with a sort of bacterial infection imposed on top - have been prescribing antibiotics to them, but it's still not shifting in some!

It's definitely a lurker, and we are advising patients that the cough will probably persist for up to eight weeks (although the other symptoms will clear much sooner)! The best advice is to dose up on your paracetamol whilst you're feeling a bit icky and do some inhalations - a bit of menthol-type stuff in some hot water, towel over your head and breathe it all up. Sorry to be crude, but all the catarrh-y, sticky stuff is just sitting there, and it needs to come up - that's what my GP supervisor is recommending!

I hope you guys are starting to feel better soon! I've managed to escape thus far, but the sheer amount of people I'm seeing with it, I just think it's going to be a matter of time...

Take care!!
