Crazy, creative ideas for bedrest AKA solitary confinement

Week two of horrendous bronchitis during which I decided to go NC (until yesterday) with long-time (ex?)boyfriend/co-dependent partner in dysfunction. Broke NC yesterday after five days straight of MD-ordered bedrest - and after texting and calling everyone I knew, including my grandma - twice. Any practical tangible ideas for how to maintain NC and my sanity, oh and I don't know, my health? Any and all welcome. Thanks. [more inside]

Ideas for success with a long term aggressive cough?

You are not my doctor. I have a doctor who I will see for the third time later today. This has been going on for four weeks now without much visible improvement. I really need it to improve because right now I can't run or hike and I have a bike trip coming up at Christmas and a half marathon in January. I already missed a race last weekend. Any ideas for what worked for a similar stubborn cough? [more inside]

How to get rid of this bronchitis for good?

I'm a non smoking female in my 30s. Developed serious allergies over the past 3 years. Found out I'm allergic to any mold and dust. Was going for the shots until I found out I can't take them if I have chest congestion. What can I do? [more inside]

Will this expired Zithromax help me?

You are not my doctor or pharmacist. My doctor is on vacation until Monday. I have the onset of bronchitis. I've had it 20 times or more in the past 10 years. I know how to handle it, but I have to jump through the usual hoops to get the meds I need. However, I have an expired Z-pack - expired 2012. If I take it, will it help me? [more inside]

Best December of my life

I had bronchitis and was getting better. Now I have the flu. Due to weakness I'm having a really hard time coughing enough to clear the secretions in my chest. Could I get pneamonia, too, and if so, how screwed am I getting it with the flu? [more inside]

Help me take my albuterol!

The thought of taking medications that make one feel nervous/anxious makes me anxious because it's a focus of my anxiety problems. I'm therefore nervous about taking my albuterol inhaler (I have bronchitis, it sucks, so I should really take the inhaler). Can you give me information about what to expect in terms of restlessness, anxiety, nervousness, etc.? Duration, symptoms, etc.? I'd ask my doctor but she was totally uninterested in my special snowflake needs (university clinic, she's not my permanent doctor).

Help me understand my bronchiecstasis diagnosis

I have been sick for a while now, first with pertussis and now a bad case of bronchitis. My doctors have been trying to figure out if an underlying problem is keeping me so sick. In going back over my chest x-rays from a few months ago, my primary care doctor found bronchiecstasis. I had a CT scan yesterday, though I won’t meet with my doctor to discuss the results until Monday. I’ve been reading online about bronchiecstasis, but the articles haven’t helped me to figure out what bronchiecstasis means for my life now. [more inside]

How well have you responded to antibiotics when you have bronchitis?

I have this problem: every time I'm stressed and the temperature changes, I start to get sick. Not really sick - just a sore throat and chest pain and a general feeling of being unwell. But then I get really sick - the sore throat disappears, I get feverish, I'm exhausted and I cough up tons of nasty mucus, and I am basically not functional at all. [more inside]

Bronchitis for 2 Weeks...Then Nose Starts INSANELY Dripping

IKYNMD Two weeks ago I started getting the familiar sore throat and I knew something bad was brewing. First the coughing, then some sneezing, fatigue. Mostly coughing up a lot of phlegm that would amass at the back of my sinisis, it would trickle down into my bronchial tubes. First the color was clear, then yellow. My bronchial tubes are wheezing every time I take a deep breath. [more inside]

Acute bronchitis!

Does acute bronchitis causes one to cough blood? or is that symptom is of a more severe sickness?

Health Wanted, Apply within

I have been growing progressively sicker over the last five years getting chronic bronchitis every few months and my separate doctors (A lung specialist, an ENT and my GP) have been treating me without success this entire time, and I am growing gradually more and more weak and exhausted. This has gotten so bad that I realized that, it would be a relief if I just died in my sleep from one of my severe infections. [more inside]
