  • No advice for you I'm afraid tigershay. I just know that at times of being unwell& I get a glimmer of wellness so dash out &do something. Other times I force myself to do something because I'm fed up with saying no.

    After a little exertion it can completely knacker me and it takes at least a couple of days to recover - and I'm not that ill, compared to many here :(

    Stress of any kind never helps either. Hope you get some answers soon. All the best, Peeg

  • Only think that comes to mind tiger, is are you coughing much? I used to cough terribly and was always straining muscles in my chest area, mostly left back and front like you. xx

  • Not too much but could be as was before back on meds x

  • Hi Judith I am sorry I can't give you any advise other than try the BLF helpline click on the red balloon in the top right corner - they may be able to give you some advise. Take care TAD xx

  • Hi Tigershay1

    Sorry you are still feeling so unwell and anxious. I don't think your steroids and antibs have not had time to work yet. Normally it takes a few days for them to kick in and if you are anxious (and it's hard not to be} your pain is likely to seem worse esp as it's still there.

    Good that your 2nd opinion date is getting closer. Take care. xx

  • I agree with butter-fly you need to give the abd time to work and you need to REST. I know this from experience as I once kept pushing myself to do things instead of resting and I ended up with pleurisy. My gp gave me a real rolicking. Take care of yourself and give your body time to heal.

  • I have never smoked so thats one thing in my favour ...yes im taking naproxen and codene so is helping thanks x

  • Hi Judith, sorry you are feeling so poorly at the moment, if you are coughing a lot it could be you have strained muscles in your chest area, I do hope you start to feel better soon and get some answers with your second opinion. I am just getting over a bad infection where I had two lots of antibiotics and steroids, its the time of year too with all this damp cold weather, try and keep your chin up, I know its hard and gets us down at times.

    Take care xx
