Cold/ flu and P.D


#1

Hi I have  had a cold and nasty chesty cough for near on a month, it just wont shift. I have only been taking beechams caffine free cold n flu tablets and broncho stop herbal cough syrup.

My joints have become more stiff than usual and I feel this is worse than any other cold I've ever had.!! I cancelled my flu jab as I didn't see the point at the minute.

Anyone got any tips on getting rid of this and maybe something that will help boost my immune system??

At bedtime.......

Hi nittyboo - I would put some diluted orange lnto a mug, fill with hot water, put a couple of tablespoons of whiskey in then a beechams powder, give it a stir and drink, always works for me and OH. Even though I have PD I still drink it - all the best

Hi nittyboo, 

Have you spoken to your GP about this? If it has been ongoing for a month it might be worth having a conversation with them, it can't be nice for you feeling this way for so long.

Hi 

Does anyone think a virus can affect Parkinsons?  My husband had a virus at half term (end Oct) and since then his meds aren't lasting and finish abruptly.  The virus has gone although he has a residual cough.
