back/rib pain with a cough
Hello, just needing some other advice. I know what I should do, but I keep procrastinating! I've had this cough now for 2 months. Been to 2 walkin clinics and to an NP at a family practice. I just finished my 3rd antibiotic (levoquin) and had 2 steroids along with 2 different cough suppresants. Chest xrays were normal. Lab work a few weeks ago showed elevated CRP and platelets. My ribs hurt everytime I cough and my body is really, really sore...more than usual. After shopping at walmart other day I came back home and was in almost tears from the pain. I can't sleep at all! Partly from the pain partly from worries. I have to tell you all...my nerves are shot but I just can't seem to make the call to my oncologist. I don't want to feel like I'm over reacting if they do tests and everything is clear. Just needing other advice, I haven't said a word to anyone how nervous I really am. Don't want to upset my husband, kids or my mom.
