Hi

I am also sick with bronchitis. It started out as a really bad sore throat for about a week and half, then went into the chest and lost my voice for the past 4 days. I am going into 2 wks with this stuff. They tested for strep on Thursday, but the test was negative. The dr said it was viral. They can't explain why my throat has red bumps.

Then yesterday and today, I was bringing up alot of stuff from yellow-green with a tiny amount of blood. I would get into these coughing fits to the point of getting a headache. I ended up calling the on-call dr today and he immediately put me on antibiotics called septra. He said it was bronchitis or walking pneumonia.

Whatever is going around is nasty. I am so tired from this cold.
