I was sick and went to a Walgreen's Take Care Clinic in January. They were generous to prescribe a level of medicine that got me well in the past.
This time I had a less secure NP who wanted to follow her chart in terms of meds. I took 10 days of medicine at a weak low dose after being diagnosed with a sinus, respiratory and a double middle ear infections. I could not get well completely. I ran a fever for 5 weeks solid. That when I went back to my Doctor who tested me and found me Diabetic. She gave me stronger antibiotics, coupled with prednisone and medicine to relax the cough reflex in my lungs. I too this for seven days, started to get better for a week and went right back to being ill again. This time I got antibiotics to put in my ears. I got well after another week. Well I am sick again, fever, flushed face, ears aches everything. Why am I so weak? Are Diabetics more prone to viruses and the flu?
