Some of you have seen my complaints related to my URI the last couple of weeks. Well, last night I got all of 4 hrs of sleep - I was coughing, and coughing AND ... coughing.
I made an appointment with a doctor today, and with her stetoscope and a maneuver I have not seen before - she said what I feared ... 'you are wheezing'. To make a long story short - it is the 'leftover' from a mycoplamic pneumonia I had last year.
I walked out with two perscriptions - one for an inhaler ... and one fore 5 days of prednisone (looking forward to that - not!).
The morale of the story - listen to your body, and take appropriate action i.e. see a professional. Not doing so may impact your able to achieve your goals, or (for musculo-skeletal issues) get you hurt.
