I'm a week into taking antibioics for my first real bad chest infection since having Hypersensitive Pneomonitis. I had a 'loose' cough a couple of weeks before developing a bit of a temperature. Went to the docs that same day and started the AB's and increased long-term steroids back up to 30mg.
I think it's helping although my chest is looser than ever, even plays a tune when I breathe in and out. Not sure I'm comfortable with this bubbling and crackling noise while breathing though - this is very new to me from past chest infections. I'm coughing up stuff, which is a first - usually it gets stuck and end up panicking - just wondering if I should go back to the GP for more AB's or is this the normal pattern?
Don't usually worry, but this is my first real infection since my condition worsened in the last 6 months and never had it so bad.
