Anyone get chest pains during/after an attack that lasts days?

Hi All!

I'm a newbie, and am a little concerned. I had childhood asthma, and have been 'free' of it for a couple of years now. For the last couple a weeks my breathing has gone downhill, and the GPs have advised my asthma has returned following a virus. I had a very bad attack on Monday which resulted in me being taken into hospital, and was given steroids on Tuesday to help combat the chest pains I have been having. Is it normal to have chest pains for days after having a bad attack? I did ask my GP, and he said it is due to the inflammation in my lungs. He gave me the steroids to get that inflammation down, but I'm still having chest pains. Is this normal? Thanks in advance if anyone can put my mind at rest! C xx
