Traveling while ill

I'm not sure how many of you can cancel plans because of illness, but my particular role doesn't really allow for that except in actual emergencies.  Headed PHX-DEN-ATL (and then a 90-minute drive to Athens) tomorrow with a nagging cough, aches & pains, 102F temp, and just enough fogginess to make it more than the usual challenge. But as long as I have my voice and I don't pop an eardrum on one of the flights, I'll get through. Actually, there's only been a single trip in thirteen years that I couldn't make because of health (but a lot that likely should've been cancelled).

 

So how do you guys manage it? Do you curl up in bed until it's past, or are you of the grin & bear it sort?  Any favorite remedies, treatments, or other palliative methods you have in the kit to make it all tolerable?
