I really do not want to take the Vicodin I was prescribed, but I appear to have developed a cough. Or, I had one and I didn't realize I had it until coughing became borderline excruciating.
They said not to wrap your ribs at the ER because it can cause pneumonia... but I wonder if that will make coughing hurt less. If I just wrap them for a little while, take it off for a few hours and then re-wrap, will it still be an issue?
I'm just really starting to get frustrated with the pain.
And btw I don't want to take the Vicodin because I so seldom take pain killers of any kind, I don't know how my body will respond to them, and I am here alone with my two kids.
