I have had a bad cough for about a week and have athetoid/ spastic CP. I do not seem to have a fever does anyone have comments?

    Hi @GaryLariviere1

    Welcome to the community. How is the cough now?

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hey @GaryLariviere1 how are you feeling? Have you seen the GP?

    I went in the hospital, they found I had a touch of pneumonia. Being sick caused more spasticity and triggered small panic attacks which made it look like I could not chew. Though most of the staff was good, their lack of personally knowing about CP made it a hassle. Thank God my PCA came when she could, some were amazed how easily she took care of me.

    I saw my GP afterwards while still taking an antibiotic, I'll be going for a follow up in 2 weeks and am much better.
