Damn, I feel great today. I worked on Tuesday and was exhausted. Slept most of the day on Wednesday and I'm back to normal. I coughed up some phlegm over the weekend due to smoking more cigs than normal.

The only year it really got me was in 07, I have a damn strong constitution though.
Same here. I went with 8 guys (in an RV) and we all came back with hacking coughs and mild fevers. I don't need to say the dust was worse that year, but since then I've never coming straight feeling like total shit.
As we left the farm, my throat hurts, sinus are stopped up, coughing up thick phlegm, and now liquid stools. I feel like Leno! My GF has the same thing. Anybody else feel like crap?
Same thing here! The day before I left for Broo, I went to Dr. , got steroids & antibiotics for Bronchitis & thought I'd be ok.. As soon as i got home, went back to Dr. & was told I now have pneumonia.. more steroids & antibiotics!! Of course, the heat & humidity didn't help us at all!

I got sick every year from 02 until 07, and 07 was without a doubt the worst for me. Maybe the sickest I've ever been, for about a month. In 08 and 09 I started using hand sanitizer after every port-o trip and before ingesting anything that wasn't beer. Didn't get sick either year. Maybe it was a coincidence, but I do that now at every festie just in case.
Never got sick worth mentioning after 4 Bonnaroos. This festival I got a *very* mild cough and sore throat the day after spending some time in the fountain. Again, not worth mentioning except for purposes of this thread.
I just went to the doc b/c my coughing was way different than what i've ever experienced. I have Bonna-Bronchitis and she told me to treat it with Mucinex DM extra strength and also gave me an inhaler. I guess if not treated it can become chronic so pls keep an eye on your cough and if it lasts more than a few days go see your doc!
Wouldn't "Loose Stool" make a great name for a band?
HaHa that is funny!
We did not drink the water or go into the fountain and we both got sick. My GF made use hand sanitizer and be extra careful. That worked well! At least I feel a lot better today. Just a cough and some Phlegm and still achy.
I am back to 100% after the weekend. It took a few days of laying low, amidst work, lots of water and a little herbal enhancement. The only problem I had this year, and I think it has been attributed to the pesticides in the grass, was a halfway decent rash on my left leg, just above my achilles a short way up my calf. It's completely gone now but caused a little concern while on the farm.
Also, each year we have a round plastic pan/bucket thing we use each 'Roo for cold cooler water and sore feet. This year was unlike any other aside from the fact that I stepped in it Friday evening and was bitten by a nasty looking spider. Left fang marks and everything. I freaked out at first cuz all I could think of was 'Brown Recluse,' but to my delight it ended up being a little wolf spider or something cuz my foot is still attached haha. Anyways, I had an amazing time again this year, 'Roo had it's discrepancies [the portos, heat, gaggle of people, etc] but that is all to be semi-expected. Can't wait till '11!!
He's like you made an Ã¼ber troll by taking the worst parts of me (the utter disregard for other people's opinions), Phi (cluttering up threads with memes and adding nothing to a discussion) and Jess (an apparent belief that everyone else is the problem and/or arrogance without self awareness).
I came to inforoo today specifically for this reason, to see if this has been going on with anyone else. I've been nauseous and have been having disgusting diarrhea for 2 or 3 days now. My neighbor in family camping has the same thing. I had a sore throat right after the fest, but that cleared up on Tuesday. Now if only my poo would return to solid form!! (sorry about the tmi)
