I saw a "doctor" (PA) a day after reporting to the forum about a mysterious illness that threatened to send me to the ER. After reporting my symptoms, this "doctor" diagnosed me with an upper and lower respiratory infection (i.e., head and chest cold), and then pushed me out the door with a prescription for a few ounces of codeine cough syrup.
Two weeks later, I'm still sick.
Today I went back to the same clinic, a different "doctor" (PA again) this time, who diagnosed bronchitis.
According to the internet, my symptoms from two weeks ago today indicate that it was asthmatic bronchitis. But the asthma has settled down to simple bronchitis.
This "doctor" (or PA, which is some kind of fake doctor), pushed me out the door with a Rx for antibiotics, and nothing for the hoarse cough.
