Hi all, I am new on here. I had a chest xray1 4weeks ago as I had night sweats, sickness, lost weight from it and shortness of breathe. Xray showed what I presume was infection pneumonia. characteristics of t.b as affected upper both lung's.
I took 3 lot's of antibiotic's, erythromycin 250mg 3days, clarithromycin 500mg 7 day's, doxycycline 250mg 7 day's.
went back for another xray 3week's later show's the same but slightly improved on tje right.
I did have pneumonia 5year's ago and they did say it show's similar appearance as previous xray's. But cleared the first time I had it on it's own.
I have now been sent for a CT scan.
I feel much better in myself now,can walk alot further than before.
I also came down with joint pain in hands and shoulders and rheumatoid factor blood test came back high. Had hand xray's whivh were clear .
I am petrified and wondering if any one else has had similar and been through this sort of auto immune response. I have done a sputum test which said no TB. Is this Viral and just taking it's time?
