Hi all, amazing group of people!
I am 34 y.o. and smoked about 8 years. I was coughing with white sputum and noticed that going up stairs meant I had to catch my breath. I decided (2 weeks ago) that is time to stop smoking and I did. Saw my GP and she gave me 7 days Amoxicilin 500mg. I finished the tablets but unfortunately when I do some intense activities (even when walking and talking in the same time) I still have to stop 1-2 seconds to breathe. I went to the GP and she told me that my chest is clear, my blood tests and ECG are ok... I asked for a X-ray and she said I do not need it. Any thoughts? Is it normal after chest infection and antibiotics to still feel like this? Can it be also the fact that I stopped smoking?
Thanks a lot for your answers!
