    IN all of the years I never got anything except that cough to clear the dust. Both of my kids did get a cold though. I am just now not feeling so tired! I figure it is about 30 hours of exercise in one week of Coachella( if you do it right!)Dance, walk ,dance, walk some more, drink, walk, dance some more and repeat over and over for 3 days! Some day I will be too old for this-but not yet. Had a great time!

    Oof, I thought I'd perfected my preventative measures last year after I didn't get the Coachella Cold for the first time ever, but didn't get so lucky this year. Maybe it was the extra dust from the worn-down grass on Weekend 2, but it just nailed me when I woke up Tuesday morning, and I'm not feeling any better today.

    This year has been absolutely brutal for me, and the weird part is that it didn't really come on for a good six days after the festival.

    Ugh, I have the damn cold too.
    Haven't been able to really sleep the last couple nights, and this sore throat is pretty bad.
    I finally took some Nyquil to knock my ass out, but I woke up this morning with no voice.

    My girlfriend and I both have it. Sore throat, I had a fever until late last night, cough, runny nose, and no more Paid Time Off at work meaning I have to go for at least half a day every day. I do have a sweet beautiful tan, though.
    AC/DC and Steely Dan? Why not just get a Don Henley project on the poster so my dad can bring his R/V, his fourth wife, and make a day out of the damn thing?

    Haha yeah, I've been told I am pretty tan now too.
    So, there's that going for me.

    Sore throat checking in here. It just started this morning though. The adrenaline of the weekend has finally subsided and my body is like "what. did. you. do"

    My immune system has been completely ravaged this week by the infamous post fest cold. I still have a slight fever, terrible cough, sinus infection, and a sore throat that developed on Monday night. I can feel the healing starting to come on, but what a week it has been.

    I basically started getting really fucking sick on Tuesday night while attending Graveyard and yesterday I wanted to put a bullet in my head. Seems to be clearing up a lot now, but I still plan on going home and taking many tranquilizers again. Having no available time to take off is depressing as all hell.

    Time to revive this thread I guess. For the first time in 5 Coachellas, I'm sick AF. Woke up first night unable to breathe, felt like shit that entire day. Fever started 5 days after I got back, exhausted, achy, coughing up a lung. I'm getting the blood test for valley fever as soon as possible (have to allow time for antibodies to develop). This really needs to be addressed on the main site.

    Also my first time sick in 5 Coachellas. My buddy is on two antibiotics for walking pneumonia, so I feel lucky I just have to take cold medicine. Maybe, though, Coachella is like childbirth, which my wife tells me is something that you swear you'll never do again after the pain, but then forget any of the bad stuff when it comes time to make the decision again.

    It's not gonna matter. Water tends to come from underground or the Colorado, I believe, out there. No restrictions needed.

    Ugggh I've been stricken down with some serious chest crud, just an awful death rattle cough and a lot of phlegm that seems to be trapped.. general feeling of lethargy and malaise (though that could be festival withdrawals also). I think my physical symptoms are mostly from the dust and going hard for 3 days, next year I'm going to wear my bandanna/face mask a lot more. It was all worth it though!
