    After 7wks of coughing so bad I broke a blood vessel in my right eye, I finally gave in and saw the Doctor today, told him my story and he did the listen to the lungs thingy and said Pneumonia so I am on Doxycycline Hyclate 100 mg. Twice a day for 10 days and an inhaler because my lungs are spazing evertime I cough. Then after I said I have been told I am a stubborn sob he replied " you will probably get better despite US.....lol" I laughed.

    Been on the pills for 4 days now and I must say I am not impressed, coughing seems to be worse even though more productive......is there a Medicine Man in the house....

    Happens to the best of us man. My wife actually was having the same coughing for about a month before she went to the doctor. Had her on pretty heavy antibiotics just because it had gotten so bad before she went to the doctor.

    We sure aint as young as we used to be thats for sure.:cheers:
