Hubby had heard me coughing in the night, but I was asleep, it didn’t wake me, and when I woke up this morning, I had no idea about it as I had no dry mouth or sore throat.
Although I wasn’t keen, we rang the surgery and after about 20 minutes on hold, asked for a telephone consultation today.
The doc called me at 4.20 and I was impressed.
Not that he called me back, but the fact that he’d actually bothered to read my notes, knew about my cancers and meds, and also that I had seen the HHA (Head Honcho Ass, though obviously he didn’t call him that) way back in February 2019, so we were both confident I haven’t got The Virus.
We had a nice chat and ruled out allergies, hay fever and reflux. He looked up my meds on the Great Medical Bible on the internet and a cough is one of the side effects, but seeing as I’ve had it off and on for so long, it’s doubtful. He’s made a note though and we shall see how things progress.
He agrees with the temperature difference as a trigger and as my cough is at night, it could be my airways get blocked. He’s prescribed an inhaler to clear them, which I’ll pick up from the chemist tomorrow. If there’s no improvement, then I’m to call back and we can try something else.
So, a good result and a GP who thinks first rather than write out a prescription for wrong meds for a guessed diagnosis that he thinks you should have as the HHA had done TWICE to Hubby which is why neither of us want any dealings with him………. at all.
The laptop has arrived, and now that everything else for the day has come to pass, Hubby and I will sit down this evening to sort it out.
But first…………………….. a cup of tea!!
