Well, the sore throat started on Monday, just minor, like you get with a cold sometimes. I lost my voice a little bit. Scratchy. Little cough, the tickle in the throat thing, nothing huge. Then on Tuesday, I started coughing really bad, yacking up nasty tasting thick green mucus. I felt a little iffy but not horrible. Still sore throat, still scratchy voice. On Wednesday, coughing still very bad, no sleep that night, loads of green thick mucus and now it's started to clog up my nose. My throat is still really sore. I went to the doc on Wednesday afternoon because I didn't feel any better at all and since I have asthma, a chest cold can really get bad fast. Thursday, didn't feel better. Friday, still didn't feel better so I got the antibiotics. It's Saturday night and my throat is still really sore. So sore that sometimes I can't barely make myself swallow. My glands are a little swollen but that is not unusual for me when I get sick, even with a minor cold. I have a very low grade fever, 1 degree maybe 2. I am tired. And feel generally icky. I have a little less mucus but the cough and the sore throat are still just as bad as before.
The antibiotic they gave me is azithromicin. Z pack.
