For what illness are these the symptoms?

DH has a severe (productive) cough and a fever ranging between 100 and 102since last night. He started coughing last week and just started with the fever last night. I don't think it's the flu because he has no body aches, but could it be? All he has in addition is a headache and I am sure that is from the fever. I was thinking bronchitis, but I have had that many times and seldom if ever ran a fever with it. If anyone has any idea please share!

Thanks!

Nancy

Re: For what illness are these the symptoms?

From what you have said, it sounds like a bad chesty cold (helpful, huh?)..but treat it as that and you won't go far wrong, panadol, hot drinks, plenty of fluid, etc etc

I'd say flu or bronchitis. Not all flus have body aches.

Re: For what illness are these the symptoms?

Thanks everyone! You were ALL right! Both of us went to the doctor today as I started with the cough three days ago and developed a fever last night, and we were both diagnosed with bronchitis and placed on antibiotics.

There are so many pysical things i feel. Where do i begin. I get lightheaded all the time and dizzy especially if i have to be with people to long outside my home. I am nauseate all the time even though i don't vomit. My eyes sting and burn,my heart races and feels like it's going to come out of my chest, I am SOO emotional,I am easily upset, I always feel like i am dying, I going to sleep and wake up frightened to death, My stomach hurts like lower around both kindneys i was back pain constantly especially if i am like trying to do the dishes, I get dizzy and feel like i am going to pass out all the time, my breasts hurt like heck, sex is so PAINFUL and i always feel like i am going to pass out while having it and never wake up again... I am SO SCARED of dying.my bones ache especially if i bump something. i feel like my legs and neck is going to fall off and sometimes like i just can not support my head anymore.I feel like i'm unable to breathe,my heart will beat so hard and fast if i open my mouth i can hear it,i am either never sleeping or always sleeping,i have a dry mouth always and sore thoart, (I do have very very very BAD teeth). I have dry hair that does not grow and brittle nails, i get shooting pains in my whole body and very bad headaches,i have i feeling of doom all the time, i am always stressed.I am not able to lose weight no matter what i do and if i move fast i can sometimes feel like a huge bump in my right lower ab.

I am so scared that i am going to die my husband just says relax and rest you'll be okay and leaves me in a closed room without even comeing back to check on me,what if i stop breathing then. I am scared. I need help PLEASE.
If anyone can help me so i can be healthy or at least torerate this illness please do so i have 2 small grls 13, and 4 and want to be the mom they need and deserve. This started at 33 i am now 40...It wasn't so bad then but keeps getting worst.

Yes, others are.

You may want to read up on the Anxiety and OCD boards- those guys are really soooo helpful and compassionate.

Re: For what illness are these the symptoms?

First thought is a sever vitamin deficiency. All those symptoms you have are caused by lack of vitamins. Lacking in certain vitamins can be fatal .

Re: For what illness are these the symptoms?

While it is probably pretty unlikely that a vitamin deficiency is causing all of these symptoms, it's worth a shot. Do you take a multivitamin? It might help.

Re: For what illness are these the symptoms?

Over on the birth control board there are many posts about Vitamin B deficiency. Anywhere from lowered body temp to memory problems, loss of appetite, insomnia, and gastrointestinal disorders, dementia, hallucinations,appetite loss, dizziness, weakness, shortage of breath, heart palpitations, diarrhea,tingling sensations and mnay more. Check it out it might help.

Unhappy Re: For what illness are these the symptoms?

hi,
Not really any better at all just very drugged now..It masks
the problem but does not fix it. I asked for the new thyroid test
the doctor said no need to do it i was fine.
Well the stomach pains got better after i landed in the ER crying
and they thought i was impacted and i knew i wasn't but was crying
so hard i didn't care...Guess what i almost died when they found a huge
nest of eggs and pin worms...OMG!
And they can make you soo sick it's not funny so now we are worm free
i hope and maybe i will get my health back.
Scary thing .............tina
