Sick with bronchitis


Recommended Posts

So I haven't been able to dance for about a week now cause I've been sick with brochitis. And I don't have a fever, but whenever I start doing anything(moving around, even talking) I go into a coughing fit, so I can't go to dance but we are having rehearsal for the Nutcracker, which is in about a month. :yucky: Is there anything I can do at home to keep up my strength for ballet? LIke any streches, exercises or anything????

You have to let your body heal. Since you're still going into coughing fits whenever you move, I would say that's your body's way of saying, "No- not yet". Are you on any inhaled medicines or any kind of cough expectorant?

Ok...I'm on two medicines for bronchitis, and "gold pearls" that I guess would be cough expectorants? I take them to help stop coughing. I don't think I'm on any inhaled medicines.

Ok those pearls are basically an anesthetic to help keep you from coughing. You may want to consult your doctor, but I think physical activity is discouraged while on that medicine....
