    oh boy, It might be pneumonia I do have dry cough. Ummm, thanks for the advice, I really did not want to go to a doctor but I think I might next week if I dont feel any better.

    I am feeling better today though, my throat is sore, but no coughing . Still, I will see what happens this weekend

    I dont really have a fever, but I am tired all day and I am drinking much more water than I used to. What could I do to get better? does anyone know if there is any chance that I am having something else and not a simple cough, and what could it be?

    There was this one time it seemed like I had a cold for a month, but it was a stomach infection, once the infection got treated the cold went away. I know it sounds rare, but it happened, and I dont know if this is the same thing

    I dont know if you remember but a couple a weeks ago I was very sick..I prob coughed for a least a month straight.. The only thing that cleared mine finally was two prescriptions of antibiotics from my doctor.. I had borderline pnemonia though.. but you should go get checked out!

    My guess is pneumonia.

    Be careful and take care.
    Treatment = amputation at the neck *insert surgical smiley here*

    Put some crushed cloves, pepper, honey and ginger powder in a mug, add hot water, drink (you will wince, it's hotstuff). I took it for a few weeks earlier in the year when I was having similar symptoms to you and it helped quite a bit.

    I'm afraid we're going to have to amputate.....at the neck.

    Oh yea, you shouldn't rely too much on over the counter medicines. After a while of extensive use, your body gets kind of immune to it.

    Or it can cure it for a long time.

    I used to have a really bad cold that would occur every night and every early morning. I would take so much Dimetapp for it. There was a period when I got immune to Dimetapp and I had to take prescription stuff (stronger but nastier tasting) and that cured it.

    Now I'm pretty much cold free.

    If it comes back I just take 4 tsp of Dimetapp and it's gone.

    It works both ways.

    But I prefer prescription stuff, much stronger and better.

    The old thing is I have had the same problem as well as a lot of other people I know. We had a cold to start with, but for some reason the cough won't go away.
