Bit of a longish story
Got sent to A&E from work 2 weeks ago 5th Jan and saw GP on the thursday with a bad chest infection. Was a ctually turning a slightly blue colour in work and couldnt breathe and was choking with coughing. Had to phone docs on Friday again as although i wasnt coughing stuff up anymore or coughing as much i still had severe pain. They prescribed 30mg codeiene tablets.
Finished antibitoics and steroids now but I just tried to take my peakflow and went into a coughing fit as i started coughing stuff up again last night. I actually fell to the ground with the pain in my sides and back and had to crawl to my bed to grab my inhaler. I have taken my reliever and some painkillers which has calmed it down a decent bit. If it wasnt sat night I would probably just go to A&E but i know id be waiting hours in our local hospital on a Sat night esp now my breathing and pain has calmed down a bit.
Is this kind of pain normal as after pain of infection sometimes? I do get a lot of infections but not usually this bad afterit has cleared so im thinking its come back just as it was going away.
I kow nobody can really give medical advice i just felt like writing this down cos i did get a bit of a fright and i will either go to hospital 2morrow or my Gp on Monday if its bareable until then
