Vomiting with fever that increases in cooler climates.

Resolved Question:

Hi, I got sick about 3 weeks back. Nothing major, just coughing up bulk green crap. I went to a warmer climate for a week and I thought it was getting better. The day I got back to a cooler place, it escalated quickly. I went for my 1st run since getting sick and now it feel like my lungs are on fire. Im coughing SO MUCH, but hardly anything seems to be coming up.

It seems like you are suffering from a chest infections with sepsis. Sepsis indicates of spread of infection from the lungs.

A chest infection is an infection that affects your lungs, either in the larger airways (bronchitis) or in the smaller air sacs (pneumonia). There is a build-up of pus and fluid (mucus), and the airways become swollen, making it difficult for you to breathe.

I would suggest you do the following things:

1) Start a broad spectrum antibiotic like Tab cefepime to prevent the progression of sepsis.

2) Go to the nearest laboratory and get a blood culture done to rule out sepsis. Also get a complete blood count. Based on the culture sensitivity the antibiotics can be changed.

3) Increase the intake of water and other fluids to prevent dehydration. If you cannot take enough fluids orally, I would suggest you get yourself admitted in the hospital and take I.V normal saline.

4) Check your temperature regularly and maintain a record to check the progression.

5) Get a chest X-ray to check for lung pathology.

If the severity of the symptoms increases kindly consult a doctor for the aforementioned recommendations.

Thank you.
