Hi Lesley61. I also started with a cold on Wed, first it was just ahead cold but now coughing and it hurts, chest feels raw and lungs hurt. Like you feeling hot and cold and aching. Just hoping it not a chest infection and will have to wait now until Monday to see a GP. Hope you feel better soon Lesley, Tale care Ruthx

Hi you need to get a rescue pack from your doctor to use if you become ill at weekends or public holidays. Remember that infection can further damage your lungs so please don't take any chances with them. x

Sorry Leslie it may become a chest infection. Are you taking vitamins? Also to help combat chest infections try these three things; juicing apples and ginger everyday, and if taking antibiotics don't forget to take yogurt everyday!
