I started with a cough at christmas and put up with it for 2 weeks then finally gave in and went to the doctor, I was given a course of antibiotics, but the cough gradually got so severe it was making me sick on a daily basis and even coughed up some blood, I went back to the doctors after my course ended and he gave me a different course - still no improvement. I went again on Tuesday and I am still feeling absolutely awful, totally run down and at rock bottom but yet again he has given me my third course of antibiotics. I am feeling so desparate now because I feel like my GP is just fobbing me off. Can anyone suggest what I can do to make me feel any better or to clear up this rotten cough?
