]I am on my second lot of anti biotics and have now been given steroids prednisolone 30mg day for 5 days.
My resting heart rate was tested by the dr to be 125bmp.... its got me worried, he said its because my heart has to pump more blood because my lungs are inflammed and not working efficiently. Breathing hurts, I've pulled a muscle from coughing, so now it hurts every time i breath in... dr said to take strong 60mg pain killers for this. Taking my ventolin quite a bit to ease breathlessness. I am only 35.
The cough is easing, but chest still feels clamped. Ive been taking bed rest for 3 days. And have been ill for near on two weeks with this.
Is this normal?
Please do share with me your experiences. I'm scared. How long should it take to go? When will the chest pain stop?
