    I had a fever two times in 2 weeks. I tried the fire cupping therapy at the beginning and it worked. But today I ate some pills but still feel bad. This fever caused pain of whole body, even arthritis...

    My remedy has always been orange juice, cold towel on your head and some ibuprofen if it's really a high fever.

    What the hell is "fire cupping?"

    A fun little story... when I was 10 years old, I once got a big fever, almost 40 degrees. My parents insisted on giving me hot water and making me stay under blankets so that I would "sweat it out." Well, after I tried that for a while my fever spiked up to about 41 degrees, I almost fainted. They got worried and took me to the hospital, but on the way as soon as some cool air hit me I dropped down to a normal temperature of around 38.5 or 39 degrees and a day later I was perfectly fine.

    I don't care what Chinese parents tell you... don't cover yourself with blankets if you have a fever... it will make things worse. Cold towel on your head will help, and if you want to drink something warm, just don't drink anything hotter than 40 degrees, you want the fever to go down, not up.

    I had a really terrible fever last Dec, I thought I've got H1N1 at that moment. But my roomate told me not to go to hospital but stay and rest....
    Later, my apartment is out of electricity and i started to talked to my roomate about my ex-bf, I was totally angry as I talked more and more and remembered more and more details that guy did to me...so finally after one hour shouting-like conversation with my friend....I found I started to swear...and finally I am cured by venting all my spleen....

    try that..:)

    If you pay me 72块6毛 then I will come visit you and cure your fever, guaranteed, and for only 13块 more I will give you a full body oil massage, but you have to pay for the oil.

    @Jon LOL!!but what's that 6毛 for??

  • Joakim Berg Solum
    Oh Zhaohong, the massage has nothing to do with the fever. That's actually more for my benefit and pleasure than for yours, but if I do it for free then it will just look bad.

    The 72块6毛 covers things such transportation expense (4块 subway ride both directions, wear and tear on my shoes, and the amount of food I have to eat to be able to walk to the subway station) and of course the sea cucumber penis extract that is the magical ingredient in my guaranteed and patented fever cure.

    the best way is to sweat it out over night, no matter how. Hot soup or hot sex, what ever works
  • Børge Notkevich
    @Zhaohong, you may actually need it, if you've been burning for that long, really not good for your brains and body functions. Maybe a virus you need needles to get better from, you need to get a blood test at least.
    glad ur feeling better...
  • Joakim Berg Solum
    Zhaohong, if you still have a fever tomorrow, come join our party and we will test out the "drinking to cure a fever" theory :)

    Actually, come join us regardless of whether you have a fever or not, it'll be fun!

    Fever is your body heating up or cooling down to a temperature where the virus in your body doesn't like, so having a fever is actually your body's immune system in progress. Drink LOTS of water, try to keep as warm as possible by tugging yourself in, but do use medicine if the fever get too high as it can be dangerous.
