I've been sick again. Or still. I lose track. I first got the flu exactly a month ago and within a few days was so miserably sick that I thought I had pneumonia. I went to a walk-in doctor place on a Saturday, and saw a doctor who assured me that both through listening and on a chest x-ray that my lungs were clear.
I eventually started feeling some what better, but I kept coughing, wheezing and I caught a cold. Sometimes I would start coughing and could stop. Once I even threw up from coughing. Needless to say I'm pretty worn out and exhausted.
So then a sinus infection moved in and I've been feverish on and off since Saturday. Today my husband stayed home from work and I went to the doctor. Same doctor's office, but today I saw the regular doctor and not the part-time weekend one. He looked at my x-rays from a month ago and informed me that I had had pneumonia just as I had thought and the doctor had just missed obvious signs. Also, I do have a sinus infection that may or may not be related and on top of that, based on the type of coughing I've been doing, they are checking me for pertussis.
No wonder I'm sick, tired and getting nothing done. At least now I know.
