He has had what he thought was a cold or allergies

This preview shows page 1 - 3 out of 3 pages.

He has had what he thought was a cold or allergies for 10 days now and it is not getting better at all, in fact he says the symptoms are getting worse. He has a pressure headache, pain across his right cheek and now his teeth hurt on the top right side. He also admits to an intermittent cough that developed a few days after postnasal drainage appeared. He took ibuprofen for the frontal headache and loratidine for allergies but neither has helped. He needs to fly out of town tomorrow and just wants to start feeling better before he travels again.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
