I started to cough in the end of June. When I was still sick three weeks later I got a prescription for Keflex. 10 days later I was even sicker, now coughing up a thick oatmeal like yellow and green substance, I can't really call it mucus because it was so thick. I went to the Dr. and he ordered a chest xray, which came out negative for pneumonia, and he gave me Avelox to take for 10 days. I went back to him feeling only a LITTLE bit better, and still coughing (choking) up thick yellowy white stuff. He gave me a z pack AND a 10 day prescription for Augmentin to take. I still feel like I can't get enough air, and I am so tired after doing to littlest things. I sleep 12 hours a night, and nap throughout the day. He offered to put me out of work when I was sent for the xray, but I am off for the summer anyways. I just don't understand why I am still so sick. Any suggestions? My mother is yelling at me to go to a specialist, and not just my primary care doctor. I have also been taking a prescription Cheratussin, albuterol inhaler, and my doctor said to take mucinex to help thin the stuff in my lungs. What does anyone suggest?
