Medical Monday: The Common Cold

01 Aug

The Common Cold

This week I’ve decided to focus not on the horse, but on their human counterparts.  I myself have a doosey of a cold this week but like many involved in the horse world don’t necessarily get to take a few days off to recover.  –which is really unfortunate, by the way, because in my case head colds directly affect my brain and all cognitive functions!

Symptoms

  • Runny nose
  • A cough that rips your lungs from your body by way of your esophagus
  • Complete and utter exhaustion
  • Inability to form coherent sentences or rational thought.

Treatment

  • I have no clue.  Seriously, if you know, tell me!

Causes

  • I have a sneaking suspicion this cold comes straight from Lucifer himself.

Prevention

  • Well if I knew that I wouldn’t be in this situation now would I?

I freely admit this article is not as well researched as previous endeavors – I’ll up my game next week, promise.  In the meantime, I’m going back to bed.  Gotta feed the ponies in the morning! 🙂
