Nothing cleared it up permanently, so I'm on prednisone. Had to go to the local Immediacenter, because my asthma got triggered to the point that I felt like I was about to die, so yeah.
Between the OP and now I threw everything at the wall - reflexology of the lung points see here: (http://www.chinesefootreflexology.com/r ... allergies/
), eucalyptus essential oil rubbed on my chest and in the humidifier, Thieves oil one drop taken on my tongue in the morning bc clove and cardamom are supposed to be very good for congestion, fennel tea was recommended as being good for congestion, lime juice (just one lime in a large glass of water). Oh and I ate lots of spicy foods - with a hefty dose of ginger and cayenne. I also used pounding on my chest and back to mechanically act to loosen mucus as well. Along with a hefty dose of Mucinex, my asthma meds etc....
Funnily enough Immediacenter was cheaper than my PCP - $125 for the visit and $1.34 for the pills. Which are probably the cheapest meds I've ever gotten.
