I have a very bad cold with sore throat and i am getting blood while coughing

Hi, i developed a very bad cold last week with sore throat . It then went into a very hard cough which is non stop day and night. The noises when i breath in and out sound so bad it s almost like the sound of snoring but it s coming from either my tubes or lungs. It pops and whistles every single time i breath in and out. I ve had this wheeze since an attack of bronchitis in december. I am a sufferer of bronchitis pneumonia . The foul smell of the phlegm is so bad that it s making me vomit a few times a day and i am 99% sure that i can taste blood. Thank you Karen

I have been bothered by what I thought was a cold, since before Christmas, about three months. There is sticky mucus, not affecting my nose so much as my chest. Sometimes I cough, sometimes my nose runs with clear mucus, but mostly it s thick and sticky. My breathing isn t too bad, but it doesn t quit, and I am more tired than usual. I am active, but 73 years old. I eat healthy food, am not overweight. I seem to get better, and then it comes back. My husband also has been troubled since before Christmas, but he has more of a cough and sore throat. We both seem to get better and then it flares up again. I have been using some natural antibiotics, like olive leaf extract and oil of oregano. Is there a naturopath online?

I have been fighting a cold, sore throat, cough (getting better) and stuffy nose for one week, starting my second week. Going out of town this weekend and the week following 15 days to be exact on vacation. Will a B12 shot be good to give me to boost my immune system and shorten the length of my cold? YYYY@YYYY

My 13 year old daughter has complained of twisty upset stomach for 3 days now. She had a low-grade fever, but it is gone. Today she s still complaining of an upset stomach, not menstrual cramps . No vomiting , no diarrhea . She says it s not stress or anxiety , but she doesn t feel well enough to go to school. Could she have a bug or strep? In the past she had these symptoms and no sore throat, but turned out she had strep. I m debating whether to take her to the doctor because if it s viral, the doctor can t give her anything anyway, but then again, it could be strep. I think she really doesn t feel well, but my husband thinks she s faking. She said the pain was 7 on a scale of 1-10, today 6.

I am having fever, diarrhea, sometimes watery, some abdominal and lower back pain, with a sore throat and a cough that just started. I am a specific patient, as I have had a total colectomy and hysterectomy. Any idea if this requires a trip to ER? I am moderately dehydrated as well.

My whole body all of a sudden started aching, I have a sore throat and a stuffy nose. My head literally feels like it is about to explode.
