    I normally have an eating problem. I eat WAY TOO MUCH and do not exercise portion control. The last thing I ate was some Oreo ice cream on Sunday night.

    That night, I started feeling a tickle in my throat and couldn't sleep due to uncontrollable coughing. I finally fell asleep after 5:30AM and slept for a couple hours. My alarm went off at 7:30AM and I jumped out of bed...feeling fine considering that I hardly slept. Thinking I wouldn't be able to take a full shower before work, I put my head under the bathtub faucet. After only a couple minutes, I felt pain all over my body (like a full-body headache) and realized I wouldn't be able to go to work. My throat was finally starting to feel sore due to all the coughing through the night. If I tried to cough, I could taste blood. I later felt a bit of nausea, but never vomited.

    Docs say it's bronchitis. I didn't mention, I also haven't defecated this whole time.

    I haven't done a lot of coughing since Sunday night, but when I do, it's bringing up some nasty stuff.

    Is it possible that I don't feel hungry because my stomach is full of mucous? Wouldn't I feel the urge to go #2 and expell the mucous? Will that prevent my body from absorbing the antibiotic I'm taking?

    I have no idea, but you should make sure that you're drinking plenty of fluids even if you aren't thirsty.

    It is most likely one of two things:

    Ass cancer
    Ass herpes

    Either way you're a dead man walking.

    As an ass herpes survivor, I disagree with your assessment.

    You probably have bronchitis. Take Mucinex and make sure you spit out your mucus. Don't swallow it for the love of God...D:...it is why you have no appetite.

    Go talk to a chiropractor. I hear they are just like real doctors and can fix you right up without any medicine at all!

    My wife and I had a similar illness that I am just now getting over.
    The doctor said it was walking pneumonia, but couldn't say if it was bacterial or viral.
    I didn't have much appetite, but I ate anyway.

    My wife went to the doctor and got antibiotics, tamiflu and a steroid inhaler.
    I have gotten better quicker than her and I haven't taken anything except DayQuil and a few hits from her steroid inhaler.

    Ours was probably viral, because I caught it from my wife and her antibiotics haven't done anything.

    Hey OP, your doctor did not do a rapid flu test? How about a chest x-ray?

    Had a chest x-ray. I'm pretty sure it's not flu because I never had a runny nose or sinus congestion.

    I did get exposed to toner from a laser printer on Friday...so that might have compromised my lungs.

    Toner isn't going to give you bronchitis...
