Re: been sick for almost a month, need to sleep!
There are many home remedies that can give you relief. Myself, when I start getting weak and down and have breathing problems I load up on vitamins, supplements, and expectorants. There is a host of information on these boards that deal with your symptoms. Antibiotics, IMO, are okay but they can be deleterious to the normal bacteria flora in the stomach & intestines and result in weakening your body's ability to heal itself. I tend to approach an illness by strengthening the body's ability to overcome the ailments. Too, I'll keep a record of everything going on with my body to discuss with my doctor. Meds can definitely be good but if they're not helping then I question whether or not they may be hurting the situation.
