I have a cough that won't go away, my breathing has been labored at times, and my lower back is killing me, and I suspect all of those things are related. I've done all the home remedies known to man, and I am still not really getting any better, although I do have my voice back. Since Friday I have tried to call the doctor for an appointment, and I keep hearing that they are booked up, but to call back the next day and they could possibly squeeze me into their schedule. This morning they tried to give me that same b.s. line, and I politely asked them to refer me to a different doctor and they did. When I called this new doctor, they asked me who was referring me, and when they heard it was my regular doctor, I was told that they weren't accepting patients, and she put me on hold, and called the receptionist of my regular doctor. 5 minutes later, the referred doctor asked me to call my regular doctor.(stay with me here folks, I know this is confusing). I call my regular doctor's office back, and she says to me, Rashad I wasn't aware you were a regular patient(bullshit), what seems to be your illness. I gave her the exact same line I started this blog entry with, and she went to get Dr. Franklin(the same doctor who stuck a finger in my ass, allegedly checking for prostate cancer), and Dr. Franklin worked his magic, and told me to come in today at 1:15pm. So what I'd like to know is, where was this availability the past 3 days, and how did it magically become available. I suppose I could have gone to the emergency room, but damn I live in DC, and I could be in there 3 days straight. I miss being in my 20s when getting healthy only involved brandy, orange juice and hot tea.

See, what you should have said when you called the first time is: "this is Rashad calling. I'm a regular. I've had the butt inspection to prove it. Can I get an appointment?"" hahahahahahaa

You should be at the doctor at this very moment but have you tried nose irrigation? I had the same smyptoms you had and that is the only thing that seemed to help me.
