When I catch a cold, it really only affects me at night. During the daytime, I’m fine! I can go for a run, workout, etc…. I’m good. No coughing, sneezing, nothing, maybe a little congestion. At night it’s a completely different story. Hacking cough, sneezing, watery eyes – the whole. 9. yards. The worse part is poor Dr. B. My coughing keeps him up all night. So, he has to start his week off sleepy and tired at work 😦
Before I went to bed last night, I drank the bottle of Nyquil. Then three hours later I was back up hacking. So, I drank more Nyquil, took some Delsym, Alka-Seltzer cold, and sucked on a cough drop. That combo of drugs allowed me a few more hours of sleep. Needless to say I’m very, very drowsy right now. Last year, the doctor gave me steroids to stop the coughing. I thought that was a little extreme. I’m out of ideas…Anybody have any suggestions?
