For 2 weeks had sore throat, coughing, runny nose. Cough is bad at night. Dr gave me hyrdrocodone. Took it and still coughing. Can it be bronchitis?

Yes. Although, the symptoms are 2 weeks old, it could still be a viral infection. If cough continues, i would recommend seeing a pulmonologist (chest doctor). You may very well have a viral bronchitis. Ideal approach is to culture the sputum and rule out a bacterial infection. If the Codeine is not helping, stop it.

Early cold. If you start with early cold symptoms (which can be confusing with allergies), start nasal saline irrigations. Neilmed sinus rinse is a great product, though many others are commercially available. I would do them at least 3x a day for the next several days. Controlling underlying allergies can bring down inflammation as well. Now nasacort (triamcinolone) is otc, use 2 sprays each nostril daily. Best of luck. Read more...

M 40 yo I cough like I will almost throw up but I don't.2 weeks now. No fever or runny nose. Having bad sore throat 5 days ago. Dr gave antiBio and cough?

Bronchospasm. Assuming you are not a smoker, have sinusitis with cough from postnasal drip, nor diagnosed as having pneumonia, COPD or asthma, you probably have acute bronchitis of viral origin with persisting bronchospasm. This often improves with short-course prednisone & bronchodilator. If not, further evaluation is necessary. Hope that helps. Read more...

Likely a virus or 2. it's unlikely these were the same illness. Both illness sound like viral infections. If you develop fever or begin to feel worse see your doctor for an assessment. All the best protect others and if you qualify, make sure you are immunized for flu. Read more...
