What do I have?

I feel terrible, My throat is sore, Im coughing-not much but ut hurts like hell in my chest when I cough- I feel generally weak. Also during the night last night I woke up shuddering really bad like I was having a seizure or something T_T

So can anyone suggest anything I should do, for this Ive taken some cough medicine, mucasine, airborne (little fizzy tablet things) and some anti-biotics my docter gave me 3 weeks ago when I had a problem much like this one (just not as bad)

Edit- Oh yea Im also kinda hot and am peeing alittle more than usual and in larger amounts- Age 16

Re: What do I have?

Why do you have left over antibiotics? That could be your problem, you didn't finish all of your antibiotics last time and whatever you had has come back, except worse now. This is how germs become resistant to antibiotics, because people don't take antibiotics correctly. You start to feel better so you quit taking them thinking that everything is gone and that you are all better now. They give you a certain amount for a reason and the label clearly states to finish all of it. Just because you are feeling better doesn't mean that whatever infection you had is completely out of your system, and taking the leftovers now isn't going to be enough either.

You should go back to your doctor and tell him that you did not finish your last dosage of antibiotics and that you are sick again.

Well I assumed that I could stop taking them when I felt better since the doc said that I had a virus and the antibiotics wouldnt get rid of the virus. just make me feel better

Your doctor says you have a virus and gives you antibiotics? Hmmm....No wonder they're resistant.

Re: What do I have?

It's not your fault. Your doctor should have never given them to you in the first place if he thought it was just a virus. Anyway, you might need to make a return visit and get checked out again. Maybe you've developed something new that might actually need antibiotics this time - a full dose.
