I've been sick for over a week and I feel like I'm getting worse every day. I went to my internist last week who told me it was just a cold but on Sunday morning (at like 3:30am) I woke up and couldn't breathe well and was wheezing and coughing like crazy. My husband ended up driving me to the emergency room because we were afraid it might be pneumonia. They told me it wasn't and they gave me a flu test but it came back negative and basically told me to go home and take Afrin for my sinus congestion and Robitussin for my cough (but both very sparingly) and just wait for the virus to pass.But every day I wake up feeling worse than the day before. It sucks and I don't know what to do. I tried the Neti Pot last week and it worked temporarily (for like an hour or two at a time), but I think it gradually made things worse. The doctors don't seem to want to prescribe anything to help me and I'm getting really worried because I'm not getting any better. Anyone have any words of advice they can share?
