So I went back to my GP despite her trying to send me on a Costa del NHS holiday. She now reckons I've got pneumonia, but I'm really not so sure - 1. I'd have thought I wouldn't have been walking to the GP if I did and 2. I've have the pneumonia vaccination so it couldn't be could it? Is she just trying to scare me into going to Costa?
I had a chest X-ray at the walk in centre and have to go back to the GP for the results tomorrow morning. What exactly is pneumonia and how is it different to a 'normal' chest infection (which I'm on 2nd lot of antibiotics for) - and how do they treat it?
