I’ve been on antibiotics the last 5 days, with 2 more to go. The doctor believed it best for me to do this, since I had a cold that was lasting too long, and there were signs of a sinus infection and possibly bronchitis. The antibiotic is called Levaquin. I finally feel a bit better, but am still congested in the head. How can one person’s head manufacture so much mucous!

I thought this cold thing had caused my IgA to go up. I didn’t know if a cold would cause an increase in serum IgA or not, so I emailed my doctor to find out, and here was his reply:

“I saw your elevated IgA, and I am afraid to say that I don’t think it is
too likely that this is from a cold. I don’t think we need to do
anything differently right now until we see the next one, however, when
you come back next time.”
