Cough, Cold, Mucus Badddd

Recommended Posts

Four weeks ago I started with allergies that brought on a small wet cough, sinus drainage then the big bomb hit. My bowel has been torn up with all the mucus. Using over the counter Musinex and it has helped sinus and cough but nothing seems to calm down the bowel. I take Immodium and drink lots of water to no avail. I am gluten-free and very careful. Boy oh boy I am so miserable. I welcome any suggestions. Thanks.

How long have you had D so severe that immodium isn't helping? If it has gone on for more than a couple days a trip to the doctor may be in order. You want to make sure that you haven't picked up a case of food poisoning or another nasty bug. I say this because the only time I had severe D that immodium didn't help was when I got salmonella and had to have a course of antibiotics to get it to resolve.

My kid was sick for 6 weeks with symptoms you described. Our neighbor, an ER doctor said it was just a long lasting virus. Kid coughed all night. Allergy meds really helped her sleep and to stop mucus production that was running down her throat. Just a suggestion......

Hope you recover soon!

Thanks so much Raven and Cycling. Raven, The D does calm down with the immodium but returns the next day. I am seeing my doc tomorrow and will talk to her about it. Cycling I have just assumed it was allergies. Thanks and I will mention that to my doc too. I only suffered with this mucus in the bowel before I was diagnosed with celiac. Hopefully the doc will have a recommendation. The surgeon that found celiac is out of town but he is my intestinal guru. I'll call him next week if it is still acting up. Thanks again for taking the time to answer. Take care.
