Tylenol won't cure you, it'll only numb your nerves and make you not hurt. The best cure for a fever is chicken noodle soup, plenty of liquids, and lots and lots of rest. Don't eat any fried foods either. Drink lots and lots of water...you'll be feeling better in no time.

Also...a secret Chinese cure is to take some ginseng and mix with hot water for a kind of tea...it doesn't taste that great but it helps you sleep and makes you feel better

chamomile tea served and drank hot might help.

or you could look into combining leeches, boiled toad feet, and clipped fruit fly wings.
grind them together until you achieve a thick paste. then sit on it. :)

ekenasia (sp?)

get some "dayquil" it will get you feeling numb and active, kill the pains, wire you out, etc.

Sleep, drink a ton of fluids, orange juice, whatever. Take vitams. pee alot.

Try going to the doc and seeing if what you have is bacterial, then some anti-biotica will get you back in shape.

headcahe once in a while ... constant change in temperature ...

I've been resting and relaxing all morning. The problem is that I have a big week of school this week and if I knock myself out I wont be able to sleep tonight and I'll need my rest for the rest of the week ...

Thanks for the advice everyone. Right now its relaxation/lots and lots of water for me ... I'll have some soup soon.

Theraflu! Best medicine in the world for what you have, and it tastes good, too! :)

dafatha00 is wrong, Tylenol is very good for what you have. It will alleviate the aches and reduce the fever. In the meantime, get rest, drink fluids and eat chicken noodle soup.

You'll be right as rain in no time.

Make sure you take in some vitamin C. That helps your body deal with the problem, and helps you stay healthy once you get better.

Other than that, rest, fluids, and more rest.

Feel better soon!:)

How am I wrong?? I said Tylenol won't CURE you. Sure it'll relieve headaches and your nerves, but that's only because they act as a numbing agent. Notice on the box it says TEMPORARY RELIEF. It merely makes you feel better, but it still doesn't cure your fever, learn to read foo

I usually just pound A LOT of water. Water, and sleep are the two best things you can do while you're sick.

Did you drink out of someone else's waterbottle? You should go to the doctor to make sure you don't have Mono.
