I've been having a runny nose since morning and now my throat and ears are hurting - I've also been sneezing a little (like about 8-10 times in the whole day). Feels like the onset of flu (Please no!!! ) I've called the GP and the next appointment isn't till 3 days from now by which it wouldn't be any help if I DO have the flu. And I don't want to go to emergency with barely any symptoms ... plus, the waiting for 5 hours is too much for my back and I' sure every time we go that even if I don't have the flu, I'll catch it from the loads of people sneezing and coughing in the ER waiting area. Long story short, does anyone has any advice on what I should do? Any home remedies? And to set my freaked out mind at rest, anyone had flu symptoms while pregnant? What did you/your GP recommend you do about it?
