Not to sound any alarms but anybody been sick with this?  The cough is supposed to stick around for a couple more weeks as I have been told by laymen.  Went to the doc three weeks ago, described my symptoms and was not diagnosed with anything specific.  Was given cough syrup and sent on my way.  The cough refuses to leave.  I have eaten enough cough drops to kill a horse.  Tired of it.

That second part sounds like what that State Patrol Captain probably feels like right now.  Sorry, I am no help to you.

I had it for a couple of months.  I still have a sinus infection.  I was on anibiotics for about 10 days which did absolutely nothing.  The cough finally went away but I sure had a sore throat.

Wife was sick til yesterday, I'm home with a sick kid again today, I'm on my 3rd hour of catching up on Deadliest Catch, somehow I was able to find the only frozen pizza in existence that is aweful, it's overcast and no wind and I'm not fishing. Terrible stuff that is for sure, sounds like people are sick everywhere. I feel fine other than the inside of the house makes me want to lose my mind.

I dont go around guessing cup sizes either I just know a nice rack when I see one.

Yeah...forgot about the sore throat part the first week.  I feel fine other than this damb cough.  I was on antibiotics also, but they had no effect on the cough symptoms.  My wife still coughing also.  Neither of my kids have come down with it though.  Weird.  Thought for sure we would get it.

Sounds like what has been going around Bismarck for quite awhile.
Only hope is probably to drown it out.

Mine lasted for a month back in March.  My sinus still isn't back to normal.  As soon as I lack just a little sleep, it seems like it kicks back in.

Quack quack.


I wish it was just a hangover...

Lots of people I talk to say that the only real way to get rid of a hangover is to eat dog hair.  Does that mean that dog owners who never clean their house never have hangovers?

Quack quack!

In our family of 9 people, everyone but me has had it (knock on wood!).  One of my boys has had it for a month.  We had all 7 kids to the doctor... and over $1,000 later (i.e. out of pocket - no insurance) was told that it would have to "run its course" and that the cough could take 4-6 weeks to subside. 

The one boy (6 yrs. old), that has had it for a month, goes into coughing fits so bad he throws up.  He was skinny to begin with, but now has lost weight to the point that he looks on the verge of being an Ethiopian.  In an effort to encourage him to eat more and "put some meat on his bones", I took him to the store last night and let him do his own grocery shopping.  About $140 later we walked out of the store with his choices.  :o)  I've NEVER done that before, but I'm so worried about him that I figured I'd do whatever it took to get him to eat something.  Go figure, one of the things he picks out was Jack's Links Beef Sticks... a $17 bag of them!  :o)

Hope you guys and your families get better.  And I hope everyone else stays healthy!

that actually works... once you fill your stomach with dog hair... you forget all about whatever your problem(s) was/were before you started eating the dog hair.

I wish your family the best, I only have a 2 yr old and I still get really creeped out everytime he gets sick, I couldnt imagine having that many more to be worried about!
