About 10 days ago I started coughing with a sinus infection. I have had fever (101*) dizziness, fluid in ears, and very sore lymph nodes. The cough has deepened and it feels almost like my lungs have glue in them. When I breathe there is a very loud rattling sound which triggers more coughing. Sometimes there is a small amount of blood in sputum. Should I be using a cough supressant or expectorant? My immune system is not the best and I have several herniated discs that absolutely scream with each cough. What is rattling and recommend a course of action please!
