Just call me wheezy

I woke up at 5 a.m. short of breath and coughing.  Breathe in wheeeezzeeee, breathe out wheeeezzeeee.  I couldn't fall back asleep.  It was a horrible feeling.  No matter what I did I could not get enough air.  I wasn't going to pass out or anything but it was very uncomfortable.  I don't have asthma, as far as I know.  I turned to good old Dr. Internet to find out what could possibly be wrong.  It's either bronchitis brought on by allergies or a side effect of GERD.  I took an ibuprofen, a zantac and more allergy medicine.  After about an hour I was breathing normally enough that I could fall back asleep for about a half hour before I had to wake up for work.  I'm feeling better but not 100%. 

Ok I'm going to call my doctor and get this checked out. My co-workers are freaking me out saying it could be asthma.

    I am SOOO jealous you can do that with your name.

  3. There's lots of weird viruses going around. I'm dealing with one myself.

  4. When I first read your title, I was like "Why does she want people to call her lil wheezy (aka lil' wayne)?

    After reading it again, it makes much more sense.

    Hope you get to feeling better oson.

  5. That sucks lady! I hope they get it figured out for you soon!

  6. Ginny Wheezy is my new rap name.

    I'm feeling better today. I got some powerful cough meds and an inhaler.
