8 years out with Ned and hoping to stay that way. But I'll tell you, I have had somthing hit me. Started 1st week of February, sore , red throat...some drainage, no big deal as I've had that before. By the end of the 3rd week with no relief in sight, went to the CVS "Minute clinic" where I saw a nurse practitioner. Gave me a strep test since I was concerned being around my grandkids (whom I probably caught this from), and that came out negative. She put me on Nasonex, Claritin and a decongestant. Oh my goodness, for the next 3 weeks, contant drainage which gave me a sinus infection. Went back to her and she prescribed antibiotics. I had fever for a week! Both times, checked my lungs and was clear. But since then, wicked cough. Stubborn and violent. Some wheezing. I'm going to the real doctor tomorrow to try and get to the bottom of this. Coughing up phlem so I'm thinking bronchitis but we'll see. I really felt good today and was out enjoying the almost 80 degree weather but had to retreat to the car with the worst coughing attack as of yet!
I know the Immune system can be compromised as I've had the whole 9 yards...checo, rads & 7 surgeries. But I'm as stubborm as this cough in thinking I'm just fine and will get over this. Ugh...
I sure pray it's nothing more than bad allergies. Prayers very much appreciated sisters!
