I think I have bronchitis... I went to the doctor on

Customer Question
I think I have...

I think I have bronchitis... I went to the doctor on Wednesday. She told me I was well enough to go to work on a Thursday which I did. I came back home feeling very very sick. Today I woke up with a very drogie voice... I nearly had no voice.

Doctor's Assistant: Back (~medical bodypart) When did bronchitis begin? Have you used any medication for it?

I have used only a puffer and a couching medication

Doctor's Assistant: Have you used anything besides for this?

Nothing else...

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, your symptoms indicate pharyngitis/ sinusitis.

I would advise you some self-care remedies which you can try.
Do nasal saline drops and Otrivin nasal drops.
You should do menthol steam inhalation and saline gargles.
Use a warm mist humidifier in your room.
Take Mucinex DM.
You should elevate your head with an extra pillow.

Start a multivitamin & multi-mineral supplement.

Take OTC Advil and Allegra.

Maintain a good hydration with warm water, honey tea.
If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see your doctor or ENT specialist for a clinical exam.

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.
