    You definetly have an infection, if your white blood count is high. The little blood your coughing up could be because of the strain of coughing. Pls see another dr. Or get referred to a pulmonary specialist. Your description is vague. Are you a smoker? Chest X-rays sometimes don't show anything get a ct scan. Good luck. And feel better

    I wonder if you have cracked a rib or pulled a muscle with all your coughing. That would explain the pain but not the other symptoms. Is this your first round of antibiotics? And you've been on them for five days? I'm assuming all the test results were from before you started your antibiotics. I would continue the cough medicine even after the antibiotics and be sure to use a vaporizer or humidifier in the room you sleep in, that will help with your coughing. But it is not uncommon for your cough to last quite a while after a nasty infection..

      Yes it was my first round antibiotics and I've finished them accordingly for 5 days. Just had another blood test yesterday and still my white blood cells count high. The doctor gave me 3 days of 250g azithromycin.
