Patient: I think I have bronchitis. Thick chest congestion and sinus drainage, but I can’t seem to get it up and out of my chest. I don’t have a fever any longer, my neck glands are no longer sensitive to the touch. I dealt with all that a few days ago. Now I’m left with this rattling cough, and a wheezing chest . Three nights a not much sleep. The small amount of stuff that does come up is dark yellow, not green yet. Help!
Symptoms: Coughing, sinus drainage
