The temp dropped in Michigan from high 70s (Mon) to high 60s (tuesday) to low 50s (today). Yesterday I started getting a cold and runny nose. Today I have the runny nose still, and now I have major chills! To top it off, the building I work in is absolutely freezing all the time. So How can I keep warm? Some people here have a space heater, but I found my sinuses react badly to that (especially when I'm sick). I'm already wearing a sweater, long sleeve shirt, and an undershirt... still freezing though. What do you guys suggest? I'm about to get some hot chocolate but that is only a temporary solution.

I would suggest eating more spicey food! That is usually a good trick to heat up. It may seem like a joke, but it gives your body the impression that you are heating up from the inside, and typically you can fool yourself into being more comfortable. That being said, hot soup for lunch will do the trick as well!

Good idea! I will get something spicy for dinner. Funny thing is I had mexican in the fridge for lunch today, but didn't feel good enough to eat it - I bet it would have helped if I did eat it! There's real spicy salsa on that.

What part of Michigan. I am from alittle town called Farwell,Michigan. We moved to PA last year. The temps have dropped like that here too. When I start feeling like I'm catching a cold I drink purple grape juice. It helps me get over it fast. If your really cold you might be running a fever. Try taking an asprin or tylenol and see if that helps.

I never thought to take tylenol. I've been taking sudafed since I have a runny nose, but you are right if I am so cold I might need something like that. Luckily I have some in my desk!
