Yes, here I was thinking that I overdid it with the cough syrup last night.

Definitely!
But I think in my case it's the usual slowing down of the brain when confronted with an official form all in German.

Re: Feeling a bit off today?

I've had a migraine all day. I think is the wind that's causing it. I'm very sensitive to weather changes.

Re: Feeling a bit off today?

I had a migraine last night and I've spent most of this afternoon on the sofa asleep...

But I had an important meeting this morning and I generally react to stressful situations with sleepiness, so I'm putting it down to that.

My mother-in-law puts absolutely everything down to Föhn - so it'll be that then.

Re: Feeling a bit off today?

Time to revive this useful thread.

I have had a terrible headache throughout the whole day, in fact not sure if it is just a migraine headache or cold or something else. Went to bed earlier last night and slept until only about 3h30 am then couldn’t fall asleep anymore. Went to work looking like a zombie this morning and then had to leave earlier because of feeling unwell.

Anyone has had a similar experience today or this week with headaches? Is that a changing weather effect or something else?

It hurts when I’m typing ...

Occam's razor should apply here - the most likely cause is a cold or similar minor infection, so why would you even think of the weather?

It's not even blowing a Foehn (the usual Swiss culprit), not down this way at least, where we've had about a metre of snow in the last two days.

Re: Feeling a bit off today?

My brain hurts because I am deep in my text but otherwise the cold win/rain is pretty mean. Manky weather. The heavy weather fronts can make some Cocos feel puny, yeah!

You need: post jokes on EF, hot chocolate, a real sappy flick, peanuts, herb tea, hot water bottle on your chest, and apparently some worms for better immunity/mood boost.

A few grams of Vit C, just in case.

Funnily enough, when I walked from industrial area to Solothurn downtown for lunch on Monday or Tuesday, there was a gusty wind outside. I wasn’t dressed warm one of these days, my ears and head not covered felt terribly cold. This or some kind of minor infection, other workmate had complained about similar symptoms yesterday as well.

Musie ... you amuse me enough so that it alleviates all sort of sinuses. Vit C could help.

I’m not from Coco-land and my European genes should absorb all type of calamities

How come mods can good-rep as much as they please and I cannot good-rep back my fav mod until I spread more reps all around?

Woke up this morning with a sore throat, slight fever and a huge headache. Had to cancel plans to visit friends in Wengen this weekend. Needless to say, I don't want to infect anyone. But the lousy weather coupled with my present state... not the easiest to say the least! Hope my condition notwithstanding the weather will be short lived...
