They said to come back if it didn't get better, which of course it hasn't. I then was tested for Whooping Cough, they did the swab through my nose and also did bloodwork. I have not got the results back yet, but in the meantime I was also prescribed Azithromycin. I have taken three doses of the Azithromycin and still do not feel any better!!! I do not know what to do?! Nothing is working and I can't take this anymore..........
I haven't been tested for anything yet, so what should I be asking from the specialist next week? Whooping cough? Any other advice from people who have been through this kind of chronic coughing? Thanks!
He did a chest x-ray and tested me for whooping cough (pertussis). He then decided that it was probably allergies or asthma and gave me nose spray, steroids for a week and an inhaler. Nothing worked. I finally went to an ENT who scoped my throat this morning and he discovered that my TONSILS were huge! I am back on steroids and Augmentin (antibiotic) for 10 days. The cough was just so bad and got to the point of gagging. So, my advice would be to keep looking for the problem.
We have been through so many various types of doctors, had all sorts of tests ( immune system, allergy, cystic fibrosis, whooping cough- you name it my daughter was tested for it) We went through so many sleepless nights and rough days of exhaustion. My daughter got very sick over Christmas break and again we started seeing different specialists as we were frustrated none of the medicine was working. We kept getting the same answer, she had viral induced asthma (AKA cough variant asthma).
He does have a compromised immune system, but has only had whooping cough and H1N1, both in January. I will be taking him to the doctor later today or tomorrow, but just wanted to maybe get some thoughts if anyone had any and would like to share? Thanks so much in advance.
Pulmonary doc plans on testing me for valley fever, TB, whooping cough, fungal infection and molds, but like I said, he is not back for two weeks. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.
Early last August I began to experience extreme chest-tightness/ malaise and was diagnosed with Whooping Cough. My GP did not prescribe anti-biotics, because he said that at that stage in the illness, they would be ineffective. I am a 21 year old, non-smoking, male who normally exercises 5 days a week. I began to feel better after 2.5 weeks of almost total bed-rest, and began to return to a normal schedule, which included moving back to College.
Thats said I was given a very painful shot of the anti-biotic Roseffin (spelling) and she is also putting me on Augmentin too, in addtion to the Cipro. Yikes I have NEVER been on so many anti-biotics in my life. I am praying that all of these drugs kill ALL of the nasty bugs I picked up or developed. If not I will have to be put on IV anti-biotics and that would be awful!!!
I am not charging you for this, you are not paying me for it, so don’t sue me. It’s a responsibility that you have to assume. If you expect a risk-free life, with massive compensation should things don’t work out, then don't try this. So, why is this book manuscript free? The physician who reviewed it said, “The materials cost less than $5.00, so there’s no income, and if, on the outside chance, a patient falls in the shower, they can sue me. What doctor’s gonna recommend this?
Well my OT started when I had Bronchitis and was put on the prescription of Doxicycline and Prednsione. I took the meds and it did away with my cough for a week or so. My cough came back and I went back to the Doctor and was prescribed Mary's Mouthwash and Amoxicillin. $300 later (no benefits) I still have a terible cough, phlegm and a bright Orange Tongue just in time for halloween!!!
