Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your question on Healthcaremagic.
Usually after any viral infection the cough is the last symptom to go.
The vertigo you are facing could either be due to excessive cough or viral labrynthiris which is ag again very common post viral infection.
Usually labrynthiris resolves by 2 weeks and the vertigo would disappear. But if it is very troublesome you could use Tab Vertin.
As with cough if there is no expectoration this and the sounds in the airway and chest is due to a hyper reactive response due to the infection.
you could use cough suppressants like linctus codeine.
Steam inhalations twice a day would also help

swelling, hands & feet I have Fibromyalgia, & arthritis, but was hospitalized in April w/elevated LFT s (@ last testing it was @ 207 ) & a WBC of .13, just under a 1, which is back to normal & they figured out that what caused that was the Topamax I was on for Migraine preventative. They think the elevated LFT s is due to too much Acetaminophen in Vicoden ES & Fiorcet w/codeine & changed my pain med to something w/o Acetaminophen. I m scheduled to have additional blood drawn ordered by a Gastroenterologist. That said, my new symptoms are starting out with right hand swelling stiffness and pain then left hand swelling stiffness and pain and now feet as well. This morning my left hand was so swollen the skin was taught & shiny. Usually my right hand is the 1 that is swollen and especially around the knuckle of my pointer finger but is the closest to the hand part. All of that said, what could possibly be causing this?

Hi. I took a swig out of my bottle of Cherratussin, prescribed for pain with a sinus infection. It s 10mg of codeine per ml, 150 ml. It seems as though I ve taken about a third of the bottle. I have a very dry throat and a bit of blurry vision every so often. It s been about six hours since I ve taken it. What do you think? I m worried about an overdose. I have severe health anxiety.

I was circumcised this morning and I'm terrified of going to bed. Is there anything I can do to take the edge off the pain?I've taken some painkillers (2x50mg paracetamol, 40mg ibuprofen and some codeine phosphate tablets) and read about wearing tighter, more supportive bedclothes.For further information, I just took the dressing off from around my penis and there was a fair bit of blood from near one of the stitches. Half an hour or so with some tissue paper and reasonable pressure has stopped the flow, but I worry that if (or, more likely, when) I get an erection in my sleep, it might start to bleed again.
