Today I decided it was better to go and see my GP, but he's off on a holiday so I was stuck with his colleague...
My air hunger has become so bad, and I developped a bad cough that prevented me from sleeping at all these last 6 nights. Coughing syrup didn't do anything. I'm sweating like a pig about 6 times a night, just soaking wet. Bodytemp is slightly higher than normal
I thought I needed someone to listen at my lungs just to be sure (had pneumonia twice in 3 years). My bloodpressure was much higher than I'm used to, heartrate was at 112 BPM at the dr's cabinet.
diagnosis: I think you might have a very minor cold - I had to beg for a syrup with codein, just to get some sleep without coughing, my head is about to explode after 6 days of non stop coughing.
he gave me a 2 page document entitled 'what is a cough?'
Felt like a todler...
sorry, I'm nagging, this is minor stuff, but drs get me so mad sometimes.
