This may be a little out there, but I was prompted by my reflective posting to LS's Mycoplasma topic.There was a case where I had to take care of a patient in the hospital who came in with this awful productive cough. Three of us nurses who took care of this patient also came down with this awful cough after, which lasted for me 8 weeks. I would cough up sputum almost every hour on the hour, even through the night (which was not good for sleeping). I don't think I was diagnosed yet for fibro yet. The doctor thought he saw something funny on my chest X-Ray and had me do a lung scan. This, however, was negative. I have no recollection now of what if anything I was treated with other than trying various cough meds. Anyone else ever had an infection like this?
