I think I have a cold. It started out as just some nasal congestion on one side and a sore throat. Now it's both sides and I'm coughing a little. I have nasal spray and I used it when I got up, but it's not working very well. I also feel feverish. I took some Tylenol for that. Since I feel like death warmed over, I'm going back to bed. If I don't feel any better by tomorrow, I'm calling my doctor.

Saturday evening, I started feeling a tightness in my chest, but didn't thing too much about it. But it got worse on Sunday and yesterday. My throat felt scratchy and my voice sounded funny. When I woke up this morning, my chest felt really tight and it really hurt to cough. My throat felt worse and I sounded like I could sing bass. I've been taking the store brand of Mucinex (guaifenesin) and Tylenol. It helps a little bit, but not a whole lot.

Fortunately, I had an appointment with my family doctor this morning. She listened to my lungs and said they sounded tight. She put me on antibiotics to nip this in the bud. She also told me to take more of the guaifenesin for the chest congestion. I'm hoping this keeps whatever this is from getting any worse. I DO NOT want to end up in the hospital.
