I am having the most miserable weekend.
It started Thursday with a nasty cough. Friday morning, I felt like crap and was coughing up crap so I went to the doctor. He told me I have bronchitis (yayyy) and prescribed both an antibiotic and a cough syrup with codeine (that puts me to sleep).
So, I came home and got online and looked up information on bronchitis. I found on numerous pages that it is almost always a virus and that antibiotics do nothing to help it. greeeeaaaaat. Anyone know anything about this? Isn't taking antibiotics unnecessarily bad for you because you can build up a resistance?
Of course, I am also insanely nauseous . I don't know how this fits in with bronchitis, but I can't keep anything down - not even the antibiotics. (Hell, not even water today!) So they're definitely not doing any good nor any harm, I guess. But I'm completely miserable. I've puked three times today... the third time was sparked by a sip of soda. This is not good. I'm starting to wonder if I have the flu on top of bronchitis, or if I'm allergic to the medicine, or what the heck is going on.
I know a message board is not the best place to seek medical advice. I plan on calling the doctor tomorrow (dang doctors with no weekend hours!) and asking what to do. But in the mean time... anyone know any ways to combat nausea? As I am sitting here, I feel like I might need to run and worship the porcelaine god once again...
