Every so often I stop and wonder if I’m doing enough for my flu symptom problems.
I take all of the medications that my doctor prescribes me.
I sweep and vacuum my apartment quarterly to detach any potential airborne lung irritants, however that isn’t enough either. My sinuses get blocked and my breathing is packed to the brim with coughs and wheezes. As things got worse, I started scouring the web for solutions to my physiological complications. The main problem was cutting down on the field of possibilities, as I could have anything from basic flu symptoms to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Many of the guides I found helped with disinfecting and cleaning many sites in the apartment that could be a source of lung irritation. Don’t get me wrong, I suppose it is fantastic to keep the majority of the surfaces typically dusted with the floors mopped typically as well, this only goes so far with making my flu symptoms abate completely. But, it wasn’t too far from the real explanation. Despite the fact that most of my complications were not necessarily being exacerbated by dust and dirt on random surfaces around the house, the complication was still dust related. In all honesty it was the dust accumulating in my cooling system filters. I was only replacing them once every more than five to multiple weeks which left the filter full of dust fairly hastily, both obstructing my cooling system’s air flow & reintroducing dust back into the air going in and out of my lungs. We made the choice to buy a bunch of filters in bulk in hopes that adjusting my filter twice as frequently as before will improve my flu symptom problems forever. If it has some realizable positive effect on my flu symptoms, it will be worth the money spent.
