Around three weeks ago I developed a nasty infection - coughing up all kinds, blocked nose etc. GP prescribed amoxicillin which was useless.
I attended Wythenshawe for my Mepo - I mentioned I had been unwell to the nurse who asked for a sputum sample which I provided.
I had to go back to GP was matters had gotten worse - my sinuses were also flaring up, high temp, headache. GP was concerned it was pneumonia - I was given Doxycycline - a weeks worth.
Wythenshawe got back in touch - my sample had "lots of bugs" (their words) - I was asked what GP had described - when I said it was doxycycline I was told that would be satisfactory.
Although I feel a bit better I am still coughing up sputum, have a runny nose and I feel feverish at night despite finishing my course. Maybe I need another course or maybe it is something more sinister - I have lost a bit of weight due to having little appetite.
