I woke up this morning with the same sinus headache that slapped into me yesterday. Staggered into the kitchen, to pour coffee, and found that I had two good swallows left.
I couldn't stand the thought of something cold to drink, with my sinuses in the state they're in. So I took TinCan Assassin's advice.
About a week ago, he sent us some of the products he's selling: AdvoCare Spark. I can honestly say that the stuff works. Mix it in about eight ounces of water, and drink. It has the same effect as a 16 oz Monster Rehab, or a couple of Mountain Dews, or a 16 oz mug of coffee the way I make it.* Good product.
He likes it hot. Suggested I try it that way this morning if my headache was still hanging on. So, I did.
I'm awake. My headache has eased as much as drinking something hot usually does. And it was like drinking hot fruit punch, with a bit of a nutty undertone that it doesn't have cold. Overall, not bad. It doesn't have the soothing effect coffee has on me (yes, I know coffee is a weird comfort drink--but it's still my comfort drink), but it wakes me up just fine.
But I'm still gonna get a cup of coffee from the university coffee shop when I get there.
*Coffee gets ground very fine just before it's made. 3/4 c of fine ground coffee per 10 of 12 cup pot worth of water. Most people add water to my coffee (or a ton of creamer) before they can drink it. And I drink a 16 oz mug of that every morning to wake up. Sometimes, it takes two cups.
