  • sounds like the flu, you could have pneumonia....coughing up blood is not good at all....

  • umm...good rule to go by: if you either hack up or pee out blood, go to the doctor. Pain meds are for the pain, not the cause of the pain.

  • You should get into the doctor today. You probably should have a strep test done, or be assessed for some early anti-virals. Strep, by the way, can make an adult feel very seriously ill, as can the flu.

  • Sometimes you need to do what you know is right, despite family input. Your symptoms warrant a visit to the doctor. Go today.

  • wow i can't believe how many women on here have serious issues, go to the doctor!!!!!! seriously lol, my god- if i had all that i woulda already been to the doctor, and i hate going. blood and muccus is NOT a good sign, so at the very least- tell your doctor all of your symptoms and see if they recommend you go in. i hope you feel better, and i hope your dh is more supportive!!
