Severe cough, which didn't come up, was my symptom of bronchitis. April 19, 2018 is the start date. I was getting worse. Before starting cough I felt like I started with allergies of ear and throat. Then it became a cough. Very hard to come up and blow my nose so much. As days went by I got worse. So I decided to go to the emergency room and they found acute bronchitis.

I have had bronchitis for over 4 weeks now. I have been on antibiotics and steroids and inhalers. It went away for a week and now is back worse than before. My doctor just keeps giving me expensive inhalers. I have such tightness in my chest. I am tired of it. I wonder if I should do another round of antibiotics and steroids.
