Patient

Q: Hi Dr. Abby, Ive been having a bunch of different symptoms that go on and off ever since I overused hydrocodone back in mid-late February. I went through respiratory depression and had some kind of upper respiratory infection which kept making me spit up some kind of white stuff, I also was having cold sweats. I fought it for a week then couldn't anymore it got very hard for me to breath then I went to the ER after I started getting needle like feelings in my hands and lower legs which went away once I arrived, the doctor listened for fluid build up in my lungs and said he didn't hear anything so he prescribed me hydroxyzine pamoate and promethazine no refills and to take every six hours, it took a bout a week for me to feel better and the pills lasted I think two weeks, this happened a month ago. I'm now dealing with my ear ringing, and I'm still somewhat spitting up this white stuff that smells weird and has a bad taste, I'm also dealing with heartburn and it's hard for my body to digest food properly. Do you know what I could be dealing with? I've never had any health problems till the overuse which was a one time thing that I totally regret.
