Dr said its still sinus congestion! Really we have a fever of 101+ on average, a really bad cough which once it starts its difficult to stop coughing. Fever reducing meds only drop fever by a degree. 4 of 5 of us have the same symptoms. 2 of which haven ever had allergy issues.

Also when i lay down on my back or side or stomach i cough soo hard i toss. Told the dr all this she still says alergies, been since monday on medt to help it yet the fever is going up, the cough is worse.

Thinking i need a second opinion, would you agree?

She said for everyone to take musinex, according to the packages. So i grabbed 2 bottles, started it monday on the oldest dd. But dr also gave her antibiotics for her ear infection, shes on day 4 and feeling a little better however monday i started musinex, and im not im actually running a fever enough that meds arent reducing it, have shakes and chills. Dd2 has joined me today with her fever and cough. My thought if it was allergies the musinex would fix it, however the fever is what throws me.

I have bronchitus we went to the next town to ensure a different dr. The clinic recp even asked why i just didnt go back to theoffice we normally use. I said i wanted a second opinion because i dont believe she was correct, she said okay, the dr saw me and within 10 minutes said it was bronchitis. Hope to be feeling better tomorrow, thanks

I did when hubby got home, after a day of coughing driving was going to be too stressful. He drove. I saw a different dr n a different town he said bronchitis. And gave me meds. My cough is already less than it was.

Hubby drove me when he got home to the neighboring town saw a different dr. He said bronchitis. Sent me on the way with meds. Which are helping the cough.

Went out for a second opinion, i have bronchitis. No wonder none of the cough meds or musinex was helping. The kids have it too...
