This is what I thought. I had gone to the hospital with a high temperature and coughing green phlegm. The radiography asked if I was coughing blood. I said no, but I feel ill. She told me to wait so she could ask the doctor and she came back and said the doc will write to your doctor. Next morning a woke with shivers then sweating and took my temperature and it was going on for a 102, I felt so ill I called an ambulance and in meantime took paracetamol. At the hospital they took bloods and decided to do another xray, to which I said I only had one yesterday, look at that, but no they wanted to do another one. This is st.thomas hospital I'm talking about. They then tell me that I have a Viral Infection and give me Doxycycline and steroids. I was told my bloods were ok my xray was ok even though I'm coughing green phlegm. I thought antiobiotics are usless for a viral.
What I want to know is, what did the Radiographer see that the Doctor couldn't. I'm back at the doctors this morning as my temperature is up and I'm going hot and cold again. I do have COPD and I'm supposed to have backup medication. I've been on Doxycycline but I think Im immnued to it now and it's not doing anything for me. What do I do
