I've been sick since March 18th & still have no answers. It statrted with what I thought was allergies but then I developed a fever and was
coughing up dark green mucus. My doctor put me on antibiotics and steroids and things got better temporarily. Shortly after the end of the
antibiotics my cough came back but it's been a dry hacking cough. My fever is intermittent going from 98.7-100.6. I've been put on Bactrim and that started Monday with no relief. I have constant malise and fatigue and headache. I just started having sharp pain in my lower right
abdomen are but I don't know if it has anything to do with this. The doctor did say I had mild signs of bronchitis that showed up on my xray. My blood work only showed an elevatted platelet count. I've had an influenza test, strep test, mono test, and urine test and all came up
negative and normal. So I don't understand why I'm not any better. Can anyone help?
