A good week. I have a sore throat today after 4 weeks of gastro! Extreme dieting LOL
I picked it up on Saturday and have only just returned to work :(
Ohhhhh only about a week hardcore cold then lingers for about another 2 !
Probably about a week, until you pass the age of 40, when lurgy becomes permanent. Bleuuuuuhhhh!! :-(
did you catch it from Sir Tel?
good news mine was only two weeks
'bout 4/5 days lovey, you need to drink hot fresh lemon and ginger tea type things - and take LOTS of vit c x
It's around 4 days but with your powers it'll be crushed in moments, like a bear cuddling a mouse x
is it the sickness one? I've had it all week comes & goes in waves. You cheered me up on Buzzcocks & Juice though! Get well
Secret is..don't fight it+it will go quicker! Hot toddies help too! Hang in there xx

I dunno how long it lasts but I think Ive got it now.Sore throat& nose&chest.Phlegm (lovely word),chesty cough.Sound familiar?

That made me feel better :) I'd have laughed out loud if my throat were capable of sound.

it's usually about 2 weeks, have a hot toddy and go to bed and you'll be sweating like mculky culkin at nap time!
I'll be your voicebox. I am cackling my laughter onto the breeze, should reach you in about 30 seconds xx
glad I'm not alone feels like someone has there fist in my chest.
hot toddy (whisky honey and lemon) will work wonders...helped me yesterday! Plus a good excuse to drink before 12
I know the secret nut as you don't seem to respond to Tweets I see no reason to share'
one week. But make sure you take time to recover. I didn't and now have postviral thing. Permanent hangover... avoid! Get well x
Around and About
it'll last two days if you get in a tracksuit (one of savilles finest will do) and sweat your huts off in a sauna.
I've had for ages now, feel as rough as a bears ball scrotum
ha ha! That's a good one... Sweating like winehouse at customs!!
I hope u feel better soon! :)
Any chance you might show up at a couple of Ben Folds gigs in the new year?
did you give your lurgy to my wife?
sorry, maybe that was a bit harsh, you are not pathetic. Vit C is water soluble in the body so take it throughout the day..
I had it and it last 24 hours! Hubby had it and it lasted a week!!!!
I too am dripping with sweat like Richard bacon on "that" day at BP. Hang in there will pass soon poss an extra day as ur male!!
i felt bobbins for a couple of days but then its just gone away overnight
I had it and it only lasted a day, but my mums had it f 2 weeks
mine lasted 3weeks, the grim reaper was sleeping at the foot of my bed, the sly old bag of bones was after easy pickings!!
lurgys usually last no less than 10 days - U'll start to feel better by the 10 day mark
As a mancunian may I point out Peter Kay's from Bolton; a place where being able to remember is truly worthy of a place on stage
if it's been over a week go to the doctors, it may be tracheitus, a secondary infection
It seems to last for ages and just when you think it's gone, back it comes !
Been three weeks for me so far. Absolutely knackering aint it.........
