  I feel like I've been run over by a freight train!

Storyline: Sam feels that his cold is getting worse and the cough has gotten deeper.  So he goes to see a doctor.  The doctor prescribes some medicine to loosen up his chest and calm his cough.
Doctor: Hi, how are you feeling?
Sam: Horrible.  I got a cold five days ago, and now it seems it's getting worse.  The cough has gotten deeper, and I feel like I've been run over by a freight train!
Doctor: Well, let me take a listen to your chest.  Deep breath in...and exhale.  Inhale...exhale.
Sam: Hear anything interesting down there?
Doctor: It sounds like you have some congestion in your lungs.   Have you been coughing stuff up?
Sam: A little, but not too much!
Doctor: Well, we need to get that junk loosened up.  Here is a prescription.
Sam: What's it for?
Doctor: It'll help loosen your chest up and calm your cough.  I want you to take it every 4 hours for a week, OK?
Sam: Fine.
Doctor: And don't forget to drink lots of fluids.
Sam: You got it.  Thank you.
Doctor: You're welcome.  Take care.
