Customer Question
My daughter started the week...
My daughter started the week with a sore throat and some fatigue. She also had spurts of coughing and wheezing. Her temp. was 99.9 at one point. Went to walk in clinic, said it was a virus. Today (5 days later) she has progressively gotten worse. No fever, very little coughing, but her head is completely stuffed, she has zero energy, and cannot hardly breathe at all no matter what she takes. She has both eyes very irritated, some yellow mucus and a little blood coming from her nose. Absolutely miserable. Is it worth another trip to the walk in clinic? Saw an eye doc yesterday..couldn't say if it was viral or bacterial but he gave her some prescription for them. They keep gooing shut.

Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
I am sorry for her condition.
As she is having so much symptoms, I feel she needs an examination in urgent care again.
Difficulty in taking breath needs to be investigated further.

Sinus can be involved.

Chest or lung infection needs to be checked for.
Doctor can auscultate her chest & if necessary take CBC, X ray, throat swab.
Please keep her at rest & well hydrated.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
