      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Cough up your lung

Recommended Posts

This is the second night in a row that I've been completely sleepless coughing up my alveolar tissue. I've also got body aches that might end me for good......so this could be my last post on this fine website!

 

Anyone else had or having a near death experience???

Had it last week. Had to go a week without running. Went snowshoeing last weekend as the sinus funk was tapering off. I'm fine this week, but have to get back up to my previous running distance & mileage. I was lucky - got over it fast. It was all over my office this last month or so, and I was one of the last ones to succumb to it's deadly grip.

Thanks.

Feel better ILS! Listen to Muffy! Add honey and lemon to the tea. There's some really nasty stuff going around so take care of yourself.

 

I was in the ER with my 9 yo on Tuesday night. She was having difficulty breathing. A local urgent care had diagnosed her with viral bronchitis that morning, but didn't prescribe her an inhaler. I called them back after talking with a couple of people who had experience with it, but they said all she needed was the Prednisone. :mad: Now my 7 yo is coming down with a similar cough. No skiing for us this weekend :(

I haven't had even a sniffle since I started supplementing with 2,000 IU Vit. D/day.

How long have you been doing that? I just read an article that talked about this very thing and about how folks in the NW don't get enough sun and vit D and that there are a lot of illnesses that may be tied to this. I am very interested in this.

Since October. :tup:

 

It was the big article in Scientific American that confirmed it for me though.

That's the one I was referring to!

OK, I am getting on the wagon with that. Any specific D suppl you suggest?

Sounds similar to the results they found with vitamin-A and vitamin-A deficiency in children in parts of Asia.

 

Ligands for nuclear-receptors that can turn a particular subset of genes on in a massive-way. Probably best to steer clear of mega doses.

I take straight Vit D rather than fish oil, and I pop 2 generic 1000 IU tabs per day - not both at once, but staggered, one with breakfast and one with dinner.

 

Once the UV index goes over 3 I'll get my D from sunshine instead.

I wish I would have known to try that when my kid was just starting school. I had always been health as a horse, but when he was 3-6 I was continually reeling from all the viruses. My immune system is just now recovering.

It's important to realze that even maxi-doses of Vit D aren't going to be a panacea, otherwse ppl who live in the tropics and get sun all year round would never get sick.

Thanks Muffs! I went to the doc today and he's got me on an antibiotic run for the next few days. Modern drugs are CRAZY.....I took my first two pills 7 hours ago and my fever has already dropped down. Its been my experience that antibiotics work amazingly fast.
