- Just stay in bed.
- Drink lots of fluids so you don't get dehydrated.
- Take Tylenol regularly - or change it up by switching between that and Motrin. Always works for the babies.
- Take something for congestion if it happens to accompany your fever.
Your body is going to ache - a lot. You're doing more harm than good by trying to do anything more than recover. Perhaps the flu is the body's way of saying, "Slow down, damn it! I'm tired!"...just a thought.
