Re: chronic sore throat and cough over a week now!
Oh well no replies, I guess no one has a clue what it is. My doctor apparently didn't either, just keeps saying if it's not better in a few days I want to hear from ya. After over 3 weeks, with on again off again sore throat and cough, and 2 doctor visits I went to an ENT. He did a scope on me and looked down my throat and examined my sinuses. RX, some Prilosec, a nasal rinse therapy called a Netti pot? and new anti-biotics called Cefdinir (Omnicef), 15 days worth. I saw him Tuesday am, and its now Friday night and I am 95 percent (knock on wood) better, the best I have felt in 3 weeks, sore throat gone and cough just about gone. I think we finally got this thing licked. Basically some sort of a drug resistant bacterial infection was going through me the whole time cause the Zithromax didn't do a thing,and now the new antibiotic is kicking it out of me hopefully for good.
