Decongest: If you decongest your nasal passages, you can breathe through your nose and your cough should get better quickly. Since oral decongestants may keep you awake, you can try a topical decongestant spray (just don't use it more than once a day and then not for many nights in a row). A recent study suggested that honey was as good if not better than cough medicines at relieving cough.

Not very reliable: Positive allergy testing for a food item is considered to be a false positive test unless you have a reaction to the food when you eat it.

A coccyx injury: The tail bone (sacrum) ends in a series of small bones (like a rattlesnake tail) called the coccyx. If a fall or the traumatic delivery of a baby tears the ligaments (tissue straps) that hold the bones in place, the coccyx moves out of position (dislocates). This is not only painful, but can be painful for a considerable period of time.
