Im coughing too much and disturbing her beauty sleep

I took a long hot shower and that calmed things down for awhile

Bu i cant fall asleeo. Shes on the queen size bed and im in the recliner again...but i have to sit upright or i have coughing fits

Im.afraid they will want to push steroids when i go to doc...i wish i could find a decent doc

Im so sleepy but i just cant sleep. Im wheezing so loud etta thinks theres a mouse in the room...

I need to find a boring book i guess. I am not a happy camper

I called doc and they sent me to urgent care. I was there 3 hrs. The doc was reasonable and able to hear problems in chest. Im not happy his answe was doxy, 100 mg 2 x a day...because others on here are taking that for this bug and it isnt working well

But its better than them.telling me to wait it out. He also prescribed me a narcotic cough syrup and steroid inhaler

I got the doxy and probiotics and elderberry and i am.going to try to take all i have and musinex and a lot of fluids and no dairy andtry to get some good sleep

My son really got better from this in two days with stronger zith than i got

Do u think that is cuz i had so many abx in past?

Im wondering how the others are that have this bug

Kayak .. your son is much younger than you... and hopefully his immune system is in better shape than yours! Sad to say!

Very glad you went to the Urgent Care!

Hope you can sleep tonight and will feel better in a few days.

Elderberry extract is very good.

Also helpful to calm a cough, and you can leave a pellet in your mouth as you sleep - a very SPECIFIC BRAND of

Hope you feel better soon.

This bug is something else. My daughter just finished a steroid pack and a z-pack and she's still coughing and is losing her voice.

Back to the dr tomorrow.

Usually if i take elderberry as soon as i start to feel sick i dont ge. Sick. I went thru 3 bottles this time and still got sick. Im taking it anyway and hope it will make illness go away sooner

Tonight imwondering if i have a second bug on top of first cuz i have been sneezing. Like crazy. We have have a lot of tree pillen but i have never been allergic to it before

I still have original sx and fever back too

Linky this time they gave me doxy, inhaler and cough syrup and said to keep taking musinex, and sudafed

Also forcing water, gerrn tea, honey and lemon and if i cant stop coughing even in middle of night i get in hot shower and breathe and it calms coughing for awhile

Yeah, the pollen is really bad this year.

That's what set dd's problems in motion, I think.

Plus, it's been very rainy/wet here, so more mold than usual too.

Look into the benefits of using a salt inhaler.

This is dry salt crystals in a tube...you inhale air through the salt, picking up salt ions that you breathe deeply into your lungs.
It reduces inflammation and helps to clear out mucous.


You can find many vendors at Amazon, eBay, etc.
You can read reviews at iHerb.com.

Read reviews with more choices at Amazon.com.

Several people at LymeNet tried this in the past for their asthma symptoms, with good results.
I bought a "salt pipe" more than ten years ago...there are more brands now and the prices are lower.
This is excellant for bronchitis and pneumonia.

Have you had a chance to check this out?

For ten or twenty dollars you can improve your lung function.
It won't interfere with other treatments.
