Okay, so I ve been ill for the past seven weeks. It started off as a cold and cough, after five weeks I went to my doctor, and was prescribed amoxicillin for five days for a chest infection. It seemed to clear it up for a couple of days, however, it flared up again even worse and I m in agony. I ve barely slept, I m constantly coughing, sometimes yellowy mucus comes up (sorry if that s tmi hahah) and I m just exhausted in general. I have a lump on the right side of my throat but I think it’s just a swollen gland?
I went back to my doctor today as it does n t seem to be improving, I ve tried everything for it, all types of cough syrups, tablets. You name it and I ve probably tried it. Nothing seems to shift it. The only advice I got from my doctor today was “come back if it gets worse”
I m at my wits end with this, it s reached the point where I m fed up of being ill, I just want it gone but I just feel like it isn t being taken seriously. What should I do?
I’m an eighteen year old female, I have asthma. I’m on montelukast tablets, salabutamol inhaler, ventolin inhaler, I have hay fever. I’m also taking the cilest contraceptive pill, I have never had an asthma attack.
