Me too, in the midst of the worst head cold ever, but it's the sore throat that's REALLY killing me. I can deal with the stuffy nose

I must say I'm surprised at the number of those going for runny nose... I've had them both now, and while the sore throat sucked, the runny nose made my head feel like a log filled with mucus that wouldn't stop dripping, my head was stuffed, eyes kept watering, using tissues as if they were sandpaper...

I'm amazed that people would actually choose having a sore throat over having some snots. It is horrible when it feels like you have a porcupine stuck down there.

Ok but what if it was like only semi sore. Like bearable... would you still take a runny nose over it?

Still amazing to think that people used to die of these things.

Fun fact! Do you know that you can never get the same cold twice? Your body makes antibodies which fight off a current cold, and then you can never get it again, only a different one.

Either one is fine, and preferable to these sores that seem to pop up every now and then.

Ugh, I'd really rather have neither since when I get a cold, I get slammed with both of them to the extreme.
But I guess if I had to choose, I'd choose the runny nose 'cause it's not something I'm exactly unfamiliar with when it comes to allergies! I can deal with a runny nose, I can't deal with a sore throat, that's the kinda crap that keeps me awake the entire night.

I'd rather have a sore throat, so long as I didn't have that tickly choking thing that goes with it. I constantly have a drippy nose cos of hayfever/sinus issues so anything extra is unbearable.


Try the Kleenex Aloe Vera tissues. They are like a gift from god

Well since I have a cold at the moment a runny nose.

Sore throats = not much talking, and that almost kills me
As I do quite alot of talking

I think I'll go with sore throat too, so long as it's not too bad. I'd rather have some discomfort on swallowing than not being able to breathe thru a crusty stopped up nose. Plus, I think for me it's easier to take the discomfort away from a sore throat than from a stopped up nose.

But, I'd just rather not be sick, period.
