Well, you won't be given antibiotic if you have a fever/flu/cold because it's a virus related sickness not bacterial. So, i was wondering why, everytime i had a fever and went to the doctor back in Malaysia, i was given antibiotic(not just me)? Do they now about antibiotic has nothing to do with virus? No offence doctors!
Then, i learned new things, that tylenol (acetaminophen) is not a good choice for headache. She said ibuprofen is better and she also recommended Excendrin(acetaminophen, aspirin, caffeine) for my headache. So, i went to the pharmacy and get both Advil(ibuprofen) and Excendrin. After a couple of days on drug, my headaches completely gone. Alhamdulillah~~~
But, then i started to cough (2nd week). It's so disturbing. And on the 3rd week which is now, it getting worst. I had stuffy nose and really bad cough. My chest feels tight. My breathing is not so smooth and i sneeze all the time.
So, i decided to see the doctor again today. She was surprised to see me again which is definitely not a good sign. And i was given another course of antibiotic since the first course might not go very well. And i was also given an inhaler which usually given to people with asthma which actually cost me a lot of money. And i actually went through a chest x-ray to check for pneumonia which turned out to be negative (for now). And i was also given a breathing treatment using a little weird machine. And all of these really cost me a lot of money. So, Mr. health insurance, you better not give me hard time!
And on my way home, i spent a few more dollars buying yogurt to balance my antibiotic course and some 'naked' juice for vitamin C boost. Hopefully my immune system will get better soon.
Really want a healthy me back. :(
