sick- go back to the doctor? Ellie. 34 kids; Arizona 25371 posts

I've had a severe cold for about a week. Went to urgent care because I was worried it was something worse. I get walking pneumonia quite a bit, as well as bronchitis, sinus infections, etc. Blech.

She said it was just a cold and sent me home with antibiotics :roll: and something for the cough (some random pill). Still waiting on the pharmacy to fill it.

Today, I'm wheezing like crazy (wasn't last night). And it blocks my airway. I cough so violently that I've peed on myself twice already. EWWWW.

Do I go back or go to a different doctor? Think there's anything else they can do?

The only thing they might do is a breathing treatment and prescribe albuterol.

DD had the same thing a month or so ago and ended up being admitted overnight for breathing treatments every six hours and an IV because the stupid antibiotics they prescribed gave her intense diarrhea.
