    I got 101.3 fever....best plan of attack?...any ideas. please help

    I got 101.3 fever....best plan of attack?...any ideas. please help

    I was having muscle aches yesterday and amid all my worries, I managed to post something on Clarence Bass, the bodybuilder with the staying power and longevity, he's in his early 80s (you'll see that in the over 40 forum area) entitled "79 is the new 29?"

    a true testimony to enjoying the now and forgetting about the speed bumps that come our way

    symptoms:

    1) dry cough
    2) body aches
    3) 101.3 fever
    4) feeling woozy and def can't drive a car
    5) Thankfully, I can smell and taste foods
    5) Thankfully, I have a good appetite
    6) Thankfully, Digestion good
    7) Thankfully, Stool firm
    8) Thankfully, no sore throat
    9) Thankfully no body chills

    You may note that the medical profession considers 102.2 the top end or the top window of a low grade fever

    I got a tele doc app't on Saturday, that's 5 days after noticing this fever which wasn't there yesterday, only body aches were there yesterday

    After 3-5 full days of rest, and the fever doesn't go away or go down by a lotafter all that, one needs to make a face to face doctor visit I'm told from all the info. out there,

    Plan of Attack?

    1) lots of clear fluids, i.e. water?
    2) cold compress ?
    3) antibiotics (although it's not a bacterial infection, it still might help)?
    4) Low Dose of dianabol 10 mgs for the next 3-5 days to increase my Red Blood Cell Count?
    5) Vicks vapor rub or Tiger balm (either is good) on the upper chest for the cough
    6) cough drops
    7) warm almost hot water salt gargle?
    8) Low dose of Cernos Test. Gel Caps at 20 mgs: 1 per day?

    All of the above?
    Or...anything else I might have missed.

    ______
    ______

    thanks in advance,

    NGR

    i want to avoid the face to face visit on sunday or next Monday

    im sending good Karmic vibes to donate to your favorite charitable org.

    i need to beat this quick and get back to work

    at 1st i thougth my friend's 0-2 sensor in his car was what led to my dry coughing and tiredness, with gasoline being imperceptibly slowly pumped into the car I was driving as a passenger with him

    it is more to that, it was his son's cold probably

    I forgot to add aceto.

    For some reason, it is a fever reducer right?

    I wonder why i'd have to actually make an app't with a doc in person, i mean it's not a bacterial thing where he can prescribe me amoxicillin, it's either a common cold, viral infection, etc.

    what could the doctor possible do in person?

    to counteract my sluggishness, I drank slowly and spaced apart, Monster energy drinks (zero sugar) b-12 and some Korean ginseng and some barbell squats to activate natural Test. levels...can u tell? LoL

    oh, i had my influenza vax in early november 2022 and also fully vaxxed with covid vaccines, except the little 4th one...I was told the 4th one, isn't really needed.

    u know 2 covid shots, then the booster, and the little one would be the 4th one (the most recent one)

    I want to launch a Blitz and leave no sign of this germ-induced feeling and do it fast ! lol

    Just gone & still going through this myself

    Started last Wednesday, lethargic, body aches, deep nasty cough, did a COVId test - came back negative, lotts of green shit coughed up tho. So, I was down for 4+ days

    I just loaded up on ibuprofen & jumped on amoxicillin 500x2-3 a day(I’m on day 3 now) + tons of green tea with lemon & honey + lotts water

    Finally was able to hit the gym & felt ok to work. I had a lot of catching up to do, so hopefully this won’t come back with a vengeance. I was out drilling steel for 8 hours straight.

    Just hoping for the best now

    Update: my fever has gone down to 98.7 degrees, normal body temp

    I took this temperature reading 6 hours after my last / most recent dose of tylenol 500 mgs

    I am still coughing and sneezing, but it's gone down to a level of a "common cold"

    The best thing that helped me earlier in the day is to put a rag into a tuperware of ice water and then let the ice compress lie on my forehead for 20 to 30 minutes

    the ice compress totally eradicated (for good it seems) the the low grade to moderate fever of 101.3

    It seems like much, and kinda weird, the ice comopress, but it really helps...if u really want to squash any fever and nip it in the bud, an ice compress on your forehead is the best

    Zinc helps keep colds and multiple other things away. Ive been around 100s of people who had covid, more than I probably know. Haven't ever gotten it or been sick except very mildly.

    Bring down a fever is, Tylenol. Acetaminophen is best used for fever, aches and pains

    Best thing I have found for a Very sore throat is gargling with or putting cayenne pepper in soup.

    Sounds like a possibility of life threatening complications I would advise calling 911 immediately and informing them of the issue. Help is just a push button away

    Whoa....

    I'm not sure what you're trying to convey here

    Are you mentioning this to say that my troubles are small in comparison to others more horribly situated like i.e. with really bad kidney problems?

    Or you want me to basically commit suicide?

    Maybe I'm viewing what you wrote too negatively

    My tone did come across as neurotic a bit, or with too much energy

    This is an off topic anabolic lounge post and brainstorming things is a good idea, for a common problem.

    When people are at the gym, they pick up all sorts of germs and they can't afford to be out of commission for too long

    It's all good.

    You'll find that empathy is 1 of the biggest values a man can have in addition to having a nice body, and a beautiful female companion / wife.

    We have a "winner" here

    Actually 3 winners,

    Since no one offered a charitable org., I decided to do so by myself to a worthy charity
    I decided to donate to the American Heart Association $10 to be divided between you 3 as follows:

    1) Samson (Neuro. Intact) $3 share
    2) LovByts (cool handle like that song by the 80s metal group) $6
    3) Sin City $1 share

    Lovbyts gets the biggest share (or byte / bite) cos of his ACV Apple Cider Vinegar gummies reply here on like 2 posts I read inspired me to buy a jar of ACV gummies to lower my BP naturally

    I paid the 80 cents Admin fee to this Dallas, TX based charitable org.

    The heart is the engine of Life; Heart Disease is the #1 cause of death

    here's a blurb from google ...

    "Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. One person dies every 34 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease."

    Every good deed is multiplied 1,000 x over by God and by karma (if you believe in God for the 1st or if you're an agnostic, athesist etc for the 2nd.)

    May any and all issues or shortcomings of your health be healed, if not today all at once, then little by little

    Here's a few photos evidencing today's donation

    Thanks, ya'll

    If you got a fever and body aches, best course of action is Tylenol, water, whatever food you can eat, an epsom salt bath and a lot of rest.

    Hot showers help too. The only thing you really can do is ride it out and let your immune system do the rest.

    why would i go to a doctor for this?

    does that make sense when hospitals and doctors are filled up with older geriatric people, with underlying conditions like diabetes and other things??

    this is an anabolic lounge and anything (within reason) can be discussed here

    I'm sorry you find this a waste of time, maybe scroll on, dude

    The doctor said I did the right thing by arranging a phone convo to get the right meds prescribed: amoxicillin 3 x a day and some prescription strenght tiny gels called perla tessalon or something to that effect

    the doctor would tell you or anyone that the people who wanted me to go to an actual visit are not "flattening the curve" and wasting hospital or dr office visits for those who are much much older with an underlying condition like diabetes, hep c, etc etc and

    maybe like you hate Democrats

    yeah "cuzz" ^

    we do things by tele-medicine and via forums nowadays

    We try to keep hospital & doctor visits to a bare minimum nowadays, for those much much older and much at risk w/ an underlying medical condition like cancer, diabetes etc etc


    we don't get into our car (or go on a bus / train) with the Flu or a bad cold, running a low to mid fever (*with out Motor skills messed up/clumsy from this condition) we don't get into our cars and put people's lives & limbs by possibly getting into a car accident ... to drive to a doctor's office

    Why even contact a doctor tho? I certanly wouldnt.. what you decribed is a common cold symptoms. I would be more worried if the fever was over or very close to 104 degrees. Other then that... walk in the park. Rest, lots of water and food, carlic, ginger root , vitamins and tea and youl be back in business in like 3 days or so

    Glad that youíre better. I was trying to see that IF you got Covid, you had additional risk factors the MD that you called should be made aware of, and could possibly prescribe Paxlovid. Out here in Los Angeles itís likely under prescribed & our hospitals/ERs are swamped. This flu/Covid/cold season is not to be taken lightly.

    A safe & healthy Holidays to you!
