The last time I called the Doctor they said it was a virus and could take up to 3 weeks to pass, but im genuinley starting to get worried. I haven't been this ill in years and the lack of sleep is really probably not helping.

At night I've started coughing up, not much but it looks like and feels like when you're sick so I've got no idea. Should I go back to the Doctor again?


If you are worried then go back to the doctor. Especially if you are feeling worse than you did a few days ago.

^ Both of these posts are good advice.

But yeah I see no reason why you wouldn't go back to the GP in this instance, better to be safe than sorry and all that.

You may get lucky and the GP could be a lady. Drop her an email before you go, have a check up a d get her to give you a Christmas hand shandy. Win win!

It's probably just Ebola, walk it off. Sorry, I meant wank it off.

You've answered your own question here mate:

Get yourself seen. Even if it's just for reassurance from the doctor that you've just got to ride it out.

Some of my colleagues have reported similar symptoms. Any cold flu like symptoms?
Have you had an increase in stress or worries/anxiety?

Maybe try a hot bath. Relaxing routine (hot choc, easy listening music etc) before bed.
I'd go back to the GP.

I've had a viral infection which I know about which has all been cold and flu like symptoms, but over the last few days I suddenly got super bunged up and only at night I've been coughing up this thick mucussy stuff that looks kinda brown. I'm definitely going to call the GP, but I think I feel bad because I haven't properly slept in a long time due to all the coughing. I'm going to restart steam inhalation.

I think I wouldn't be as scared if it wasn't for the thick sicky mucus that I've been coughing up. Because it's happening late at night and im not really with it when it happens I can't tell what it actually is and im worried its something serious.

I imagine it's all related and my nose keeps bleeding due to how much it's been abused, so it's possibly not being helped by that.

Could be a secondary infection of your sinuses. Have you got some good decongestants?
It's horrible. Bed rest, lots of fluids and pain relief. Paracetamol 1g 4x a day and brifen 400 mg 3 times.

Cocodamol will help you sleep and treat aches. but it makes some people sick or constipated.

I've got Olbas, I haven't been taking paracetemol as I didn't want to overdo it, but I can start taking it again.

Issue is bedrest is off the table, being in bed is the worst place for me at the minute, it makes me feel worse :(

Got a comfy armchair? Lying down isnt good if you're clogged up struggling to breathe. Blanket and pillow and cat naps.
Rest is key.

Not an AITA but...more of a Am I Right To Be Annoyed? post.

A game journo asks for recommendations for smalltime freelancer games writers on twitter. The writer of Night Call replied recommending two writers, neither of which have as much experience of me and neither of which he's worked with for almost two years, like he has with me.

I'm a bit peeved.

Far as I know! We worked remotely but he's come to Lyon a fair few times and we've met up for lunch or drinks. He's just moved here and invited me and the wife over for dinner. I mean, I'm supposed to be having lunch with him on Friday.

It's much, much more likely that you simply didn't pop into his head at that moment for what was probably, for him, a relatively low-effort tweet, than it being some kind of slight.

Oh I didn't take it as a slight. I just found it a little... disappointing that even after all that time working together he didn't think of me.
