    1. I stayed in the bed 1.5 hours and had to get up because I cannot breathe and heart is racing. I tried. Usually, I am out for hours when ill.

  2. Don't forget plenty of liquids. They keep the mucous thin, which is best.

    Don't forget a good expectorant. Removing the accumulation helps prevent bacterial infections.

    1. I do and then must get up and pee. Guaifenisin (mucinex) has been going in for days. Thanks.

  3. Also add a neti pot to your routine.
    Best thing I ever did for my sinus problems.
    Get better.

    1. I am getting dressed about midnight and going to get saline solution. I cannot bear to feel like I am drowning.

  5. I hope you feel better soon. And I agree with the neti pot advice. I think it works too!

    1. Alex,
      Thanks. Maybe I will try it when I am better. I just don't think I can fight the drowning feeling tonight.

  6. ALWAYS the same thing wrong with me, and ALWAYS the same medication. So I KNOW how lousy you are feeling.

  7. p.s. I never take the recommended dosage of Guaifenisin. I just fill the entire lid/cup up to the top and drink it down.

    OCEAN SPRAY now makes a pressurized "neti" type of rinse. It's in an orange can and you press the tube into your nose, then press the cap and the water SHOOTS into your sinus. So you don't have to feel like you're drowning yourself by pouring water up your nose. It goes in one nostril, and out the other very quickly.

    1. lotta joy,
      I almost passed out with that description!

      I take the pills. However, the generic dose is smaller than the brand dose. Tonight, when I go to WM, I will compare the doses and take more of the guaifenesin.

      Okay, I think my heart is beating more like it should after that fright.

      I cannot take the prednisone until morning. I long for morning.

  8. Aaaargh. I am so sorry. Feel better soon.
    Prednisone is not a drug which agrees with me. I had a few courses of it intravenously, and blew up like a beach ball. A red beach ball. No wrinkles though - they were all puffed out.

    1. EC,
      Well, it is Monday morning now. I can take prednisone, or have been able to. No wrinkles? Hey, there could be an upside to this whole ordeal.
