I have been having some trouble with my chest for just over a week now. Last Thursday I went to my GP as I could feel that I had a chest infection starting. He said he couldn't hear anything and sent me away with a course of prednisolone.
By Monday I was worse and went back, this time they could hear it and gave me amoxicillin for the infection. By Wednesday I still wasn't feeling any better so went back again, this time they ended up calling an ambulance for me as my breathing was so bad. The hospital gave me a nebuliser which helped and told me to continue with the steroids and antibiotics.
I'm now on day 7 of steroids and day 4 of antibiotics but don't seem to be feeling any better. I still have an audible wheeze and am taking ventolin every couple of hours.
I don't want to be a pain but surely I should be seeing an improvement by now. I have another appointment tomorrow but I'm not sure what else they can do!
