Just went back to my gp for the THIRD time for my cold/ asthma. Finished my antibiotics yesterday still felt like crap got a prescription for 3 prednisone - one day rook one already not sure if its really working, The pharmacist said I had to go back to the doctor if it doesn't work. All I know is my chest is still burning and tight. I guess thats the punishment for staying at work and NOT going to the doctor when I should have and then suffering through my vacation. I guess doing woodwork while sick didn't really help either. I wanted to finish a gift Christmas Eve.

    I think he was worried I had a secondary infection as my lungs were so tight. He isn't huge on lab tests except for my physical (actually I wish he would have put me on the nebulizer but that hasn't happened in years- he just want me to double up on my Symbicort- which I think didn't work as great as my pulmicort and bricanyl).

    Did they do a sensitivity and culture on you? Antibiotics don't work unless it is bacterial and most infections are viral. If it is bacterial the C&S will tell them what antibiotics actually work. I hope you feel better soon.
