Hi Miss Shelxx
Here are some ideas on how to get well.
Causes of Bronchitis
Acute bronchitis is usually caused by bacterial or viral infections, food allergies, environmental allergies, and environmental toxins. It can also be caused by exposure to cold. Chronic bronchitis can be caused by all of the above factors, as well as smoking and regular exposure to secondhand smoke. Both forms of bronchitis can also result from cold, flu, or sinusitis.
Aromatherapy:Inhaling the steamed vapors of the essential oils bergamot, camphor, eucalyptus, lavender, pine, and sandalwood can help to relieve bronchitis symptoms. Bergamot, sandalwood, and thyme are also useful for relieving excess mucus production.
Ayurveda: Ayurvedic physicians commonly recommend a mixture of the herbs sitopaladi, punarnava, trikatu, and mahasudarshan for symptoms.
Diet: If you suffer from bronchitis, you need to be screened for food allergies and sensitivities, and then avoid eating those foods you are allergic or sensitive to. In addition, avoid all sugar and sugar products, starches, soy, corn, wheat and wheat byproducts, soft drinks, commercially processed and/or fried foods, and all foods containing artificial ingredients, such as additives, colorings, flavorings, and preservatives. Also minimize your intake of eggs, milk and dairy products, coffee and other caffeine products. All fruits should be avoided if you have bronchitis, especially bananas as they encourage mucus production.
During the onset of symptoms, eat hot, spicy organic foods, such as chili peppers, garlic, ginger and onions, in order to open the air passages and encourage the elimination of mucus. Spices such as mustard and horseradish can also be helpful for this purpose.
Emphasize organic, whole foods, especially plenty of fresh, raw organic fruits (only to be avoided if in and vegetables, nuts and seeds, organic, free-range meats and poultry, and wild-caught fish. Garlic and onions should be staples in your meals, due to their powerful health benefits for the lungs and overall respiratory system. Be sure to drink plenty or pure, fresh water each day (at least eight ounces every two hours). Organic, extra virgin olive and coconut oils should also be used liberally. Homemade soups, such as turkey or chicken, vegetable, and barley, can be consumed in order to help thin mucus.
General Self-Care Measures: Avoid cough suppressants, which prevent mucus from being cleared from the lungs. Coughing should be encouraged in order to clear mucus. Spending a few minutes periodically throughout the day to practice deep breathing can also be helpful.
Herbs: Useful herbs for treating bronchitis include anise, astragalus, cherry bark, coltsfoot, Echinacea, elecampane, garlic, ginseng, goldenseal, grindelia, horehound, licorice root, lobelia, marshmallow root, mullein, peppermint, pleurisy root, and pokeroot. For best results, take as teas or tinctures.
Homeopathy: Useful homeopathic remedies for bronchitis include Aconite, Arsen alb., Bryonia, Calc. sulph., Ferr phos., Lymphomyosot, Phosphorus, and Sulfur. Hydrotherapy: Cold friction rubs applied every 48 hours can help to hasten recovery, as can treading cold water for five to ten minutes each day, which strengthens the immune system. Soaking in a hot bath for 30 to 60 minutes can also be effective.
Best of health to you

It sounds like a seizure. The most common cause of seizures in ferrets is Insulinoma, which is basically reverse diabetes caused by tumors in the pancreas. Sadly, this is one of the top 3 diseases in ferrets.
First, when the ferret goes into this state, turn her on her side. Then, with a q-tip, rub her gums with honey or Karo syrup until she's responsive. This could take up to a half hour.
Then, when she's responsive, feed her something high in protein like Gerber's Stage 2 Chicken Baby Food or "Duck Soup" (google for recipe). If she won't eat this, mix her kibble with warm water so it's softer and try to get that down her.
She does need to be diagnosed, though. Take her to a vet ASAP and ask for a Blood Glucose test. Usually, they have to do a FASTING glucose, so that means no food for 4-6 hours before the test. Talk to your vet though.
For treatment, the most effective is surgery to remove the tumors, and then blood glucose tests every 6 months to a year after. Surgery may have to be done again if tumors reoccur (and they can).
The other treatment option is not as effective for long term, but may be used if the ferret is not healthy enough for surgery... Prednisone twice a day. However, the effectiveness wears off after long term use, and is a steroid which lowers the immune system. Also, DO NOT use generic, as it is usually processed with sugars, which are detrimental to an Insulinomic ferret. Prednisone is actually pretty cheap though... unfortunately, because it is not effective for long term, she may be put on a second medication along WITH the Prednisone that IS expensive (about $150 per month).
With proper treatment, you can add a few more QUALITY years of life to an Insulinomic ferret... but without treatment, this disease is a slow and painful death. Also, make sure to always feed your ferret a high protein and fat/ low carb diet. They are obligate carnivores and do not process grains or vegetables... these foods can actually make them sick or aggravate diseases they are already predisposed to. Sugar is a big no-no, mostly because of the Insulinoma factor. The only exception is bringing out of a seizure... then no more.
So get your baby to a vet, and good luck!
PS- As someone above mentioned, Adrenal Disease can cause seizures too... but it has to be a seriously advanced case. Your ferret would be bald, under weight, having trouble urinating or using her back legs, listless, no appetite... ie: you would KNOW that she was sick.
.you do not know.
but some day you will die of something
for that is what life is.
Life is a sexually transmitted incurable disease.

Try Harper Teen for example. Oh yeah and subscribe to a few magazines too.
That "wierd" feeling is most likely a side-effect of your medication. Bronchitis is rarely fatal, but you should consult your doctor if your meds don't seem to be helping or if your cough gets worse. Fatigue is a common symptom of bronchitis, which may also be why you feel "wierd." Stay on your meds, call your doctor if you're having trouble breathing or if you start coughing up blood. These are symptoms of acute pneumonia, which can be fatal. But no, I don't think you're dying.
Bronchitis is not fatal. Some of the medications given for bronchitis to open up your breathing passages can make you feel "spacey", like Albuterol inhalers and aminophylline (Theophylline ). They are probably what's causing you to feel weird. Also, if you're on antibiotics, they can make you feel out of sorts too, because they are prescribed in pretty strong dosages for this condition.
What you're describing sounds like my old Saturday morning 'morning after" hangovers.
If you're all that concerned, you should check in at your local ER.
In the meantime, sounds like you simply are suffering the symptoms of a respiratory INFECTION. And if you feel like you're "not here", that sounds like you're running a high-grade fever. That IS something a DR should check.
