    Abnormally long flu

    I don't think my scenario is worth visiting the doctor, so that's why I'm asking on here. My whole life through my early 20's whenever I got the flu (couple times a year maybe) it would last 12 hours maximum. Most of the time it wouldn't last more than a few hours. I could count on one hand the number of sick days I had in my entire K - 12 schooling. Now I'm 30, and the past couple years when I get the flu (couple times a year still) it will last a week or two. I currently....

    My mom has a cold, and is making no sense.

    My mom started to get a cold about 2 days ago. She has a stuffy nose, sore throat and is coughing. She has been sleeping most of the time. Today I woke her up to eat and she was making no sense when she was talking. She said that blue fluids were coming out of her eyes. She accidentally almost called the police and when I brought it to her attention, she said "well did you call because of an emergency". Then she continued to make no sense. She has no fever and I don't know what is wrong....

    Constant Coughing

    I have had a pretty much constant cough for the past month or so. At first I was coughing up thick nasty mucus and I had a head cold with an on/off fever, but now the head cold is gone and it is just a thin, mostly clear mucus. It kind of accumulates and then when I start breathing heavily (I play basketball) it causes me to have this awful hoarse cough that I can't stop. I went to the doctor and was told that it was just irritated sinuses and that there was nothing in my lungs. I was put on....

    Chronic symptoms of flu-ongoing for 3 months

    My friend, male, 37, has been smoking for 14 years. He started to "feel tired" three months ago, but he has been having three-to-five-hour sleep for a longer period than that. He has caught a cold for several times during the winter. He constantly coughs, sweat cold sweat, has a headache, shortness of breath, phlegm in the throat and a runny nose. It worries us that he has been like this for a while, and although there are intervals over which he got better, he always got the same symptoms....

    Ongoing cough and worried it can be underlying cause.

    So to start off, I am a 23 year old, male, 6’3” valet. I work in the cold, and we park in a garage that you can taste the dust on your tongue. Not great. I recently got the flu and developed a cough. It was dry for awhile, but I was prescribed prednisone and I have been taking mucinex with it to break it up. I had already taken off a week of work from the flu and couldn’t afford to do another week, so I had to ask for the steroids. The past two days have been the worst with me picking up slack working....

    Long Term Side Effects of Antibiotics

    In winter of 2016 I fell ill and was inbetween insurance, so I went down to mexico for a reliable doctor's visit. The Dr prescribed me some antibiotics. I took it and only was able to do it for 3 days before my body couldn't handle it anymore. Since then I've gained a tremendous amount of weight and nothing I can do will change it. I've always been healthy, work out daily, and eat right and yet I still have gained over 50lbs. Even in pictures you could see I ballooned up within days....

    Cough. Morbidly obese. Pneumonia

    I am morbidly obese. Trying to lose weight. My brother was recently sick with a bad cough. He passed that to me. It’s kind of muscusy but dry. I have heard a lot of morbidly obese people die from pneumonia and it’s making me really scared. I don’t have anything else other then a cough...yet. I’ve only had a cough for about a day.
