Have you ever experienced feeling better after drinking coke..when having flu? I definitely have..hahah..also headaches. Besides just being around as a normal beverage, this drink can actually change moods and create enthusiasm in life. Feel free to drop in your experience with coke..even if someone mistakenly spilt it on you..:D Princess

I love Diet Coke and I drink it all the time. It does raise my spirits and keeps me awake and alert. If you have a belly ache or upset drink flat coke and it will help. Also if you can find coca cola syrup it will help to.

Could it be the sugar or maybe the caffeine. Some people get headaches when they cut down on their caffeine when they are addicted. It can be quite a powerful stimulant. However I think it might be the sugar that you get from the drink. When you are sick I think you need more energy and the coke provides instant sugar energy. I frequently crave fruit when I am sick. I do not normally eat a lot of fruit, not that I dislike it, but I do not have the same cravings as when I am sick. I wonder if it is the sugar or the vitamins that my body craves.

I do not normally drink carbonated beverages at all. black coffee , green white or black tea , water , cranberry or currant juice however. I am a migraine headache suffer . And in my cupboard you will always find a couple 20 oz bottles of regular coke classic. because no matter what type of medicine i have been given the coke is the only thing that can help me with the pain , must be the sugar jolt... or whatever ... but yes i love the effect when needed
