Mom to Mom Mom to Mom
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?

That's great!!

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.

Yeah I would probably go to a walk in clinic.

Sounds like a wicked URI to me! Did they do Bloodwork? That would tell you right away, as well as the fever that won't go down. Definitely get a second opinion!

What is a URI?

My second opinion didnt do blood work but did a better job, and we have bronchitus.

Coughing more while laying down is very common with drainage, also with a sinus infection.  A fever is kind of nessesary for the body.  The best thing for sinus issues is Ocean saline nasal spray.  You can use it as much as you want, and it's keeps the nose and sinus moist.  Also Mucinex is good because it breaks up mucus so your body can get rid of it.  Take a decongestant during the day and drink a TON of water.  Hope you feel better soon
