    I dont know if you can pull this off, but here is what I recommend to anyone who gets sick or anything close to that. Here is the story.

    A few summers ago, I had a cut on my knee that ended up developing into an infection. It wasn't very big, maybe the size of a nickel. But it wasn't pretty.

    Anyway, it made me sick, so I went to the doctor to find out more about it. The doctor told me what it was, gave me alot of antibiotics, and told me that if my temperature was to ever exceed 101 degrees, I was to immediately go to the hospital. Very comforting news.

    A day or two later, the fever died down for the most part, and I was able to go to work. However, as soon as I showed up, it returned, and I felt like terrible; I could barely stand. I was sent home upon request, and as soon as I got home, I took my temperature - 100.7. Damn, I was a bit worried.

    I had just taken some medicine, so I decided to sleep. After an hour or so I woke up, and my dad was home with his girlfriend, and we had all planned to watch a soccer game that was going to be on that night. While watching the game, I had dinner which consisted of chicken noodle soup, triscitt crackers with sliced cheddar, and a cold sierra mist. As soon as I was done - literally as soon I finished, I felt great, and the fever never returned.

    So my remedy advice to you is chicken noodle soup, triscitt crackers with cheddar cheese, and sierra mist. See what happens.

    Regardless, see you in indio, ill or nay!

    I hope you get better man! I was sick for an entire month and just got better this week. I was really scared I was going to have to cancel Coachella due to my month long flu..

    Get better and drink lots of water while on the fields!

    Yesterday I woke up with a scratchy throat, the sniffles, and that feeling of imminent plague. I immediately started popping the Zicam. Today the throat is still a little scratchy and I'm still a little sniffly, but I feel much better.

    I also recommend blocking any drafts and wearing a turtleneck or scarf while you sleep.

    I may try the soup and sierra mist for the next two days. Can't hurt.

    I've been fighting a head cold as of late. All I have now is some ears that won't pop. But with all the noise this weekend, that might be a good thing.

    I suggest large doses of Nyquil and sleep for as long as possible today, the last few times I have been sick I have pretty much od'd on that stuff for 24 hours and drinking OJ, taking Vitamin C and Echinacea (sp?). My sickness usually is gone the next day. Also when you get to the show, to a nice shot of Crown or something equally potent. It kills the germs and gives you a nice buzz to forget the pain. Good luck.

    What usually works for me: Taking huge doses of vitamin C, taking zinc, and taking zicam.

    I would definitely go to the Doctor NOW and get a set of 6 antibiotic pills that come in a pack. I think its called Shock something. They will know. It's only 6, and it will kick whatever you haves ass in 2 days. You can drink/party on antibiotics.

    I definitely recommend this. Call your doc and ask, he/she will know what it is.

    go chemical/herbal grab some garlic pills and Echinacea/Goldenseal Pills take 6 or more a day (pound em) get some airborne take a few of those each day

    now the chemical - grab some dayquil tablets, take 2 to 4 each day to open your sinus and stop the runny nose

    this happened to me at a fest and the first day it fought he symptoms even though I was in a foggy condition...the second day I was fine

    lastly get as much sleep tonight and tomorrow that you can...and drink WATER and OJ

    Fuck it. You're already fucked.

    Prescription: Rip a huge gagger every 30 minutes from now until monday morning. DO NOT SLEEP (this could intensify sickness). Every 4 hours, eat 1 (one) E pill, and roll face. While rolling, do NOT forget to snoot aforementioned gagger every 30 minutes.

    Report back on Monday, and good luck...

    Have anonymous airplane sex, eat onions dipped in caramel, blow up 100 balloons, and call a policeman a ******. (I'm not gaybashing.)

    That should work.

    As opposed to having airplane sex with a name badge and formal introduction?

    If you're already sick, there's not much else you can do other than to take meds to help with your symptoms. Bring a pack of Emergen-C with you every morning and put it in your water, it might help you out.

    if you've been diagnosed with pneumonia then you should def. take a bandana or dust mask, something to keep that shit out of your lungs. the amount of dust you inhale those 3 days is immense!
