Hello everyone,
My girlfriend has been sick for a week. Her symptoms are headaches, sore throat, chest pains, stomach aches, nausea when she coughs, back pains, foot aches, sore arms, and coughing blood. She first first started coughing blood 3 days ago which made me worried. She has taken everything from Daykil to advil cold and sinus and she feels worse than she did wen she first got her cold. I informed her to go to the doctor but she doesnt have insurance, i have tried almost everything to see wat the problems is. In the past she had anemia and low potassium. Some one please give me some advice on to wat I or she can do. Thank you

  • She could have pneumonia or something else that is very serious. Coughing blood is not a good sign. She needs medical help now. Not having insurance is no reason not to seek a doctor. Many clinics will use a sliding scale based on income or will offer a cash discount. If she won't listen to you, contact her family for financial assistance. No over the counter medicine is going to help her. If you don't go to the doctor now, waiting will most likely end with her being admitted into a hospital on an emergency basis. Now that will be expensive. Go now and it will cost less. Xrays and probably blood tests are less costly. But she needs to get somewhere NOW - TODAY!!! Your girlfriend is being foolish with her health. This is very serious.

  • She must do some blade tests. Maybe she has ate something bad. Take her go to your doctor or some other medical man if you know in your family or neighbourhood!!! She must do it! The things can be worse!!! Keep as 'signed'. Good luck!!!
