Started getting sick on the 30/31st. Experiencing headache for last 3 days, coughing up brown/yellow crap, hard to breathe at times (like my chest has trouble expanding), still blowing my nose frequently, very fatigued. I've been using a cough expectorant (rare occasion, felt so sick I ditched my normal 'let it ride through' attitude)... Never had a problem eating- most people lose weight when they're sick- I find it as an excuse to eat creamy risotto and cheesy potato soup. Gotta keep up the strength! :wine: Ready to be done with this tho. [/quote] Does the mucus "smell" bad? If so, you likely have a bacterial infection. They will eventually go away, but only a dose of antibiotics (or foods that naturally boost the immune system) will help it to heal. The color of mucus is an indication that neutrophils, special white blood cells with short lives, have invaded the infected region, then they die, then they are collected in mucus and color it. It's almost always an indication of bacterial infection. Viral infections produce clear mucus. Just like on a stoplight, yellow can be a halfway state. It means use caution. It might be pale yellow, but if darker it means more and more neutrophils are in it. Plus there's a lot of white blood cells. They actually come in waves based upon the LENGTH of the illness. The immune system say, "Hmmm, the neutrophils didn't work, so I'm sending some other soldier, maybe spec ops (special forces) to deal with it. White blood cells have lifetimes and special weapons and some have special attacks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_blood_cell Creamy i.e. food with dairy exacerbates mucus production. You're putting in food components which build glycosaminoglycans, they are the building blocks of mucus.
