sounds like--either the flu or sinus/bronchitis infection.


my kids have had pneumonia several times.  theirs involved wheezing/rattling chest, coughing and high fevers.  be it ear infection, bronchitis, sinus infection or pneumonia a round of anti-b's solved it.  AND life went on.   :yes:

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

thank goodness.  who likes vomiting and having diarrhea?

besides what do vomiting and diarrhea have to do with the flu or pneumonia?

If you are thinking stomach flu,  stomach bugs are not the same as the flu that goes around during this time of year.

Hello all,

Went to the ER cause my fever went up to 103. The did a Chest X-Ray which came back negative, they done a FLU swab in my nose and that too is negative. So they diagnosed me with a upper respiratory infection. I had always though that once u start coughing up green/yellow if was an bacterial infection(sinusitis
S, brohncotis). I did NOT receive any antibiotics.

Fast forward to today. My fever is down to 99.5 and my throat hurts because im syill coughing up yellow greenish *****. How long should i give it before i ask for antibiotics? I think they should have given them to me either way, just in case it was bacterial

why did you go to the ER? Even IF it was pneumonia, this is a gp sort of thing.  If you think you need anti-b's, go to your gp.   

typically if  my fam or I are blowing yellow or green, we see the gp and almost always are prescribed anti-bs then.

Sixpack, Im in the Military. My GP doesnt work the weekend. We have to go to the ER if we are sick afterhours. Anyhow, I ended up getting seen and Diagnosed with a Sinus infection. Was given Augmentin. Hopefully I will be on a track of getting better.

my daughter had tonsilitis and ear infection last weekend.  I was going to wait until Monday to go to the ped but she was in tears.  Do you not have access to "after hours" clinics?  Like Immediate Care sorts of places?  these places are typically faster and, actually, see lots of issues like infections. 

I do hate for people with simple infections to go to ERs cuz 1. they are highly expensive. 2. take forever. 3. often one doesn't get the best care for the simple things.
