  • A Head Cold

    I have been feeling pretty bad lately with this Head Cold going around, my lasix doesn't seem to be working too well with this cold either, but i'm still going to church tomorrow and hiding easter eggs in the afternoon, my question is how bad is it to have a cold and heart failure, i have moderate to severe heart failure they say?

    Hi Shirley,

    I hope you are feeling better. My daughter just got over a head cold and now she has this awful cough, in fact all of her friends have it as well.
    I had a touch of the cold, but so far I did not get the cough, thank God.

    The Olive pollen is starting to bloom over here, ugh, Spring Allergies.

    Hope you are better

    Hugs,

      Shirley,

      sorry to hear about your cold...I can't speak for the chf part of your question but I would give your doctor a call and ask what you can take for it....my PCP recommended "Coricidin"...it works great....makes you a little drowsy but it you take one before you go to bed, at least you'll get some relief....good luck

          Today i feel like i just might live, but i'm still very swollen and my fluid pill isn't working like it should so i upped it to 240mg instead of the 160mg they have me on, so hopefully by tomorrow i will start pulling this fluid off


          Thanks everyone you are great people
