Re: Bronchitis how long until it goes away!!
Sounds like bronchitis is the illness this year. I haven't had bronchitis in about ten years, but I got it and it's been horrible. I just started a new job and I've already missed a week and my dr doesn't want me going back till Friday.
I first went to the dr last wednesday and she gave me a z-pak for my bronchitis as well as an inhalor. I went back Sunday night to the ER because I felt so horrible. The dr. gave me iv fluids and told me I had an ear infection as well. She put me on augmenton and some other things. I went back yesterday because I was actually feeling worse and she told me that not only did I feel worse, but I looked worse as well. She gave me two more liters of iv fluids, and gave me a nebulizer to help me with my breathing.
It's bad, but I almost feel at this point I want her to admit me to the hospital for a day or two and pump me full of fluids and medicine. I always feel so much better after recieving fluids.
