I've been having this flare up that just will not go away and will not get better. It's going in 5 or 6 weeks. I've been on augmentin, levaquin, and now Zithromax 3 times a week. Of course, have been on steroids throughout. How long can this last? I'm fine sitting, but when I try to do anything, Im very short of breath. Al also on albuterol inhaler and neb treatments and Symbicort. Has anyone had this for so long? I was doing wonderfully. Not so much now.
