Sore throat/tickle seems to be arriving right on time. I don't think it comes from the dust/dirt as I had a dust mask on most of the weekend. I do seem to get this every year and am otherwise healthy.
This is from Sunday - Week 2
Only thing I got was a post-coachella gnarly heat rash. Ooh yah!
I finally caved in and went to urgent care yesterday. I spent 30 minutes on a breathing machine to breakup all the crap in my lungs.
Ended up with an inhaler, antibiotics and cough syrup with codeine. already feel significantly better.
Monday saw the ramping up of my ubiquitous runny nose, and an annual refueled desire to quit smoking. We'll see how that goes over the next few weeks.
None of us got the Coachella Crud this year but last year we were all sick for weeks. I tried to be more careful though, no water from vendors, no smoking other peoples doobies or pipes, covered my nose and mouth in the dust coming and going to the entrance, and no sickness for us! Yay:-)
week 2 - First time I haven't got sick. I think I sweat out all the toxins.
10 days on i finally went to the doctor yesterday. The coachella cold = sinus infection
UNDERWORLD - 2015 - THE PRODIGY

I'm feeling better today! Hawked up some crazy shit in the morning but I feel pretty good otherwise.

Yupp I have a full blown cold, taking Airborne when you start to feel a cold does not work. I feel horrible today.
The Neti pot is always my best friend at Coachella! Helps me not get as sick as I used to.
I heard the whole group around me is still sick. I guess they should rename it Coldchella.
Ha, my '09 thread came back. Just like my hacking cough and lost voice. I didn't end up taking any days off work (except Monday, of course, but that was planned ahead) but the whole week after I sounded and felt like dirt.
Were anyone's allergies worse this year? Usually it's not until Sunday when the grass gets beat up that my allergies go on overdrive. This year my throat was itching from day 1 (first weekend).
Regardless, it's all worth it.
I had a sore throat/ fever last night....
someone tipped me to saline nasal spray as entry-level neti pot. I think it helped me avoid the severe plague, but could just be a placebo wet nose effect.
I was in the vomitorium Monday and Tuesday. Today I feel like a champ.

You get used to it! It's a good feeling when you see all the disgusting dirt coming out of your nose.
Post Coachella Depression for me. Is there a thread for that?
Let's go on a livin' spree!
Yes filtered water for the Neti pot. I wouldnt drink tap water let alone put it up my nose...
Definitely less depressed since I went to both weekends!
I am still sick. Next year I will be prophylactic. Ugh.
