Right, so last week, Tuesday, the Urgent care told me I had viral bronchitis.
Wednesday evening I added sinus infection symptoms to my list, and Thursday my doctors office was still backed up, so back to urgent care. Still viral. No drugs! Well, here, have a Flonase nasal spray. Don’t come back till its been a week or you have a fever! On the good side of things apparently my lungs still sounded good.
Monday, yesterday, the large majority of the sinus infection symptoms had faded, though weren’t completely gone. But my cough was worse, and my lungs were acting screwy, and I’d not gotten a single solid nights sleep since this started thanks to the coughing, which was only helped some by the cough suppressants. I did however manage to score an appointment with my regular doctor.
She REALLY didn’t like the amount of fluid still in my ears (remnant of the sinus infection), but since my ears aren’t really bothering me right now decided to let it slide for now. She didn’t like the way everything was lingering, looked disapproving when I told her no as an answer to whether they’d done a flu swab or a chest xray at urgent care. Flu swab and chest xrays were done (both came back normal). Since most of the symptoms were fading, and my lungs were still clear she didn’t prescribe an antibiotic, but she did give me a course of steroids and an asthma inhaler (and instructions to use it at least once a day for a couple days).
