You live in BC. Have you tried http://www.healthlinkbc.ca ? aka the NurseLine

you can go online and do the Check your Symptoms

Here’s the one for sore throat  http://www.healthlinkbc.ca/kb/content/symptom/sorth.html#hw101028

old fashioned gargling with salt water is very effective

sinus

You can also phone 811 and speak to an RN.

They do create a confidential record of your call, just like at the doctor’s office (it only takes a minute), but if you want to have a faster call, you can ask to remain anonymous.

Oil of oregano. It tastes terrible but it is my go-to remedy for anything sinus-related. I mix it with a large quantity of water or juice and chug it down as fast as I can, and pretty soon the congestion and the pressure start easing up.

That and lots and lots of chicken broth.

Honey will help the sore throat, take some sinutab or tylenol cold for the sinus and drink lots and lots of water and just try to rest. You will be fine.
