(I think I may have jinxed myself answering a question about how fast recovery is when you're paleo lol)

Been getting worse by the day, drinking water and resting, would it be that Im doing something wrong?

ill copy and paste my response from a similar thread, i hope this will help!

there are tons and tons of tricks to helping you ward off a cold, or prevent them, the best way for future reference is to have an arsenal ready at the first signs of symptomps and deal with them accordingly. Some of these i recommend are :

-Raw Sidr Honey -Raw Manuka honey -Vitamin C -Vitamin A -fresh ground turmeric in warm milk

-Black seed oil -Wild Oregano Oil - higher carvacrol the better. -Echinicea Tincture - 1:1 ratio of Root and leaf. -Elderberry Tincture or Syrup (be aware of brand you are choosing)

-Yin Chiao (chinese remedy to stop a cold) and Zong Gan Ling (when the cold takes place). You can supplement either with gan mao ling as well.

-Myrrh sublingually

-Homeopathically - a bit more tricky as its very symptom specific but Ferrum Phosporicum 6x taken every 1-2 hours will help with inflammation and fever, alternate it hourly with Nat Sulph 6x which is the principal remedy in tissue salts for influenza. Also you can consider taking a dose of Anas Barbariae 200c , once. The big brands sell it as "cocculine" but i prefer using ones locally made by a trusted homepathic company since 1868! A good remedy to have on hand is Aconite 30C, which you should take at the first sign of flu, with sudden onset and no clear symptomps.

If your chest bothers you , you can pour boiling water in a bowl add a few drops of tea tree oil (higher the terpinen-4-ol the better) and peppermint essential oils and inhale briefly to give cooling relief.

Neti pots are also fabulous and you can use a light solution of manuka or sidr honey to flush your sinus as a POTENT natural anti biotic..

dont forget the ultimate cure, BED REST!

These tricks should help you stay armed for your next flu attack!

I keep the "flu and cold shot" on hand, a herbal concoction that really helps. 10 days a month (in a row) I take ech+, lung tonic and super tonic as a preventative. Been doing it for years and it seems to work. I get sick maybe once every five years or more. If I "feel something coming on", I double the dose of the three and do a flu and cold shot. available here: https://www.herbdoc.com/index.php/Our_Products/Cold-&-Flu Dr. Schultz herbdoc.com You can ask for some of his free books, too, on various subjects when you place your order or read them online. I wait for sales and then stock up. The herbs last, probably fifty years or more if kept closed and in a cool place. My mom used to use them for years. I also do his liver and kidney and bowel detoxes. The bowel detox is not for anyone with any kind of bowel or intestinal problems. You would have to have the bowel cleanse changed for any disease like that. They are very helpful on the phone or in person to help personalize their herbs. Just be thorough with telling them what ails you.

Me too! I got sick Christmas Eve and have been feeling better/worse depending on the day. Just keep taking Vitamin C and D, bone broth, eat well, rest. I don't know what else there is to do. :/

What are your symptoms?

Simple viruses can take a few weeks to recover, but if you develop a secondary bacterial infection you may need medical attention. There's lots you can do for yourself (bone broth, rest, probiotics), but remember that medical help may still be needed.
