    Right, so since September, I've had a snuffly nose and difficulty breathing. I've had my inhalers increased (I'm asthmatic) which helps a bit, but it's just getting worse. I'm now getting headaches, synus pain, a constant cough, fuzzy head, tiredness and feeling lethargic and bad ears. I feel so awful, it's really taking the mick now, I've had this for over two months for goodness sake! I've been to my doctor, she told me to inhale steam but if it doesn't improve, she'll treat me for possible synusitis.

    Is there anything I can do for it? I've tried every cough sweet in existance, but no, this cold will NOT be stopped. It's more than a regular cold, it's the pain and exhaustion I'm finding difficult.

    Also, could I possibly have ME? This started after I had an original, minor cold, which never seemed to fully go away.

    I also have pretty much what you're describing (though I'm not asthmatic, so probably not as bad). Has been about 3 weeks now and it just keeps fluctuating from barely a problem to practically killing me. Hoping it will just go away soon though

    That's what it's like for me, it's horrible, some mornings I just wake up in agony from it, I'm really hoping it goes soon.

    Cuddle up with me in bed Ali and you'll soon warm up. Also make sure to put on those stockings i saw in your pic...they might come in handy.

    I didn't read all of your post, but you sure it's not some sort of allergy!
