Flu-like symptoms

Hi everyone.

My little boy (14 months now) has had an awful throat infection and I woke up yesterday feeling awful-headache, aching limbs, cold, sneezing, sore neck etc. I am 22 weeks pregnant & just wondered if anyone had any ideas of what I could take to help rid the curses of the flu!! I know you can't take Lemsip or Ibuprofen type products so any other ideas??
Thanks in advance for any help

  • hi emma, i dont think there is anything you can take other than paracetamol, i have been in bed for 3 days with flu & its awful, as if we dont have enough to deal with pregnancy eh !! Hope you feel better soon x
  • Ahh thank you, you too. I haven't taken anything at all yet! I hate popping pills. Someone suggested hanging your head over a bowl of hot water to let the steam do the work but that's too much of an effort at the moment. x
