I need help! This is actually for my child. He is 13. He went dove hunting the first weekend in September with my ex husband and when he returned home, he was congested. He was out of school on the 3rd for Labor day but then did not go to school on Tuesday because he felt so bad. I got him an appt. with the Dr. for the next day. They diagnosed him with a sinus infection and starting of bronchitis (lungs sounded clear). Started him on an antibiotic, 2 different cough syrups, and mucinex. He has faithfully been taking all of his medications and not getting any better. Throughout all of this, he has not ran any fever at all. I took him back to the Dr. yesterday, they took a chest x-ray and all is clear but my son says that it feels as though someone is sitting on his chest. It hurts him really bad. He has a nasty cough, and still no fever. Still has the congestion. The musinex is not breaking anything up. Yesterday, the Dr. said that it could possibly be mono or the flu but that he was leaning more towards the flu.
I just dont quite understand... dont you run fever with the flu? My son has not ran any fever at all?
