This is getting ridiculous!

Monday, March 22, 2010

So many of you have offered your support over the past 4 weeks as I whined and complained of a sore throat and coughing. I actually had one day -- Saturday, just Saturday -- where I felt good and without any problems, but Sunday the cough came back with a vengeance. Today it is even worse, and I am having trouble sitting for 2 minutes without the cough taking over.....

So I guess it's back to the doc tomorrow and if I can't get in to see my reg doc, I'll be sitting at the medi-centre again. I am off to TRY to get some sleep now. Hope you have a great evening......

    I can only offer the same advice as everyone else.... Hot liquids and chicken noodle soup! I sure hope you feel well again soon!

    I feel for you, girl! Never a smoker, for unknown reasons, my body (Heavens no, not ME, just my body!) developed chronic lung congestion, which reasserts itself every winter. Hot drinks help sooth the urge to cough and also soothe sore throat issues.

    I had woke with a sore throat yesterday...It turned into a sore throat and a persistent cough that would not quit...I went to my doctor today and he gave me pills for the cough and I took one 2 hours ago,AND HAVE NOT COUGHED SINCE TAKING IT.

    emoticon The name of the pills are: Tessalon Perles.

    The Generic for it is Benzonatate 100mg.cap.(It's cheaper and does the same job!)

    Directions are: Take one capsule by mouth 3x daily as needed for cough.

    Ask your doctor for it.
    It really does work!!Hope it helps!
