I have been very sick. I went to the doctor on Saturday morning and he said that I have a bad sinus infection. I cough so bad that it makes my whole body hurt. I cough so hard that I am peeing myself. ewwww. It's been bad. I have missed three days a work, my paid babysitting job and my volunteering on monday nights.

I feel like I almost just have to go to work tomorrow well or not. I don't know what else to do. I am afraid of pushing my luck with my job, but also not sure if my client will put up with me if I have a coughing fit. None of the over counter medication is doing much for me. I have been on an antibiotic since Saturday morning. Hoping this lets up soon.

Hope you feel better soon. I completely get the "cough till I pee" sucks. Get some cough med with codeine prescribed from your doctor (to take at night). I usually call my dr office yearly, just to have some sitting in the cupboard for times like this...for myself or my husband. It will make you very sleepy, but it works really well. And it's probably cheaper than most OTC drugs, because of the prescription coverage....crazy.

What antibiotic was prescribed? Is it Amoxicilian? My son in law was given that for pnemonia and as I was getting him a refill of my Zithromiacin the pharmacist basically verified that the Z pack was for pnemonia and Amoxicillian is for strep throat. Lots of spelling errors but I got to go and you should be feeling better by now!
I agree about the cough medicine.

I am feeling somewhat better. I still am having coughing fits where I pee myself. ewww I did however make it to work and drank plenty of water to try to limit the coughing in front of my client.
I can't take codiene because it upsets my stomach but actually I am sleeping pretty well. Not as good as normal but I prop myself up and I don't think my coughing is interupting my sleep too much.
They put me on Amox- Clav 875 MG twice a day for ten days.
