Hi I got a cold after coming back from pre-assessment on last Tuesday (12/8) and I am booked my lap next Tuesday (19/8). My cold is not so bad, no temperature not much coughing or sore throat. Just occasional blocked nose and tiredness. At the beginning I thought my hay fever got worse but by Wednesday afternoon I was quite sure this is a little cold. I tend to get a little cold when I am on my period and it started last weekend. I had migraines on Wednesday and Thursday but they could be because of my period rather than this cold. It is difficult how bad is this cold as I have my period symptom which overlap some of them.
I am not sure I could be a lot better by the lap day. I am hoping so as I have been waiting for this such a long time. I will give hospital a ring on Monday if I am still having symptoms.
Does anyone know how to get rid of cold quickly? I have taken Vitamin C and Zinc tablets, Chinese herbal cold remedies, eating strawberries. I am resting as much as I can.
I am not too bad today compare with Thursday when I had worst symptom. I haven't had high fever with this cold. I have been drinking green tea all day. I have some mouth ulcers but this could be from eating a bit of wheat pancake (I am on the gluten free diet).
Do you think my Tuesday lap will be cancelled? How bad do I need to be in order to the lap to be cancelled?
