I'm right there with you...check out my post on general health-pneumonia.
i have had this gagging cough whihc produces phlegm for about 3 weeks....was on zpack and cough seems to have decreased but still doing it too much throughout the day....even think i cracked a rib.
went to dr today cuz i hear gurgling when i breathe out heavily. she thinks i may have slight amout of fluid in one lung so sent me for xrays..also looked at cracked rib...waiting on these results..will have them tomorrow. i'm just tired of not feeling myself...i'm 36 with a three year old and need the energy back. was prescribed prednizone and some inhaler...will start tomorrow since the pred may not allow me to sleep tonight if i take it now.
where are you wtih your health now?
