I've been coughing a lot, especially at night, so much so that I end up sleeping on the couch a couple of nights a week, so I don't wake Bob up.

So I went to the doctor last week to see if he could figure out why I keep coughing and wheezing. He took a chest x-ray, and said it looked like I had bronchitis, although he also wouldn't rule out asthma, or even allergies. So he went with the scattershot approach--two different inhalers, an allergy pill, and antibiotics for the bronchitis.

It seemed to get better, I've almost stopped wheezing, but I'm still coughing. I'm getting a headache today from the coughing. So I called the doctor's office and talked to a nurse, who said that even though I finished the antibiotics, they would still continue to work for another five days, so as long as I don't have a fever (I don't know that I ever did), I should just wait a few more days and see how I feel. I feel exhausted.
