Hi thanks 4 listening, I came down with a chest infection on the 9th of Oct as a result of smoking very sensitive to cigarettes n get infection easily although smoke very little(I know silly) but was stressed. They've also burned my tongue I'm so abnormal. Anyhow after 2 weeks of suffering the chest pain headache chills sweats dizziness no energy unwell I went doc. This is not viral as no cold/flu preceding just started in lung. He reluctantly gave me amoxicillin but very low dose 250mgs tds x 5 days. This was a very low dose n I debated whether to take or get stronger dose(boy I regret that now) on day 3 felt much better to the point I went for energetic walk headache gone chest cleared n energy came back however I didn't feel 100% only 70% could still feel a bit in chest. So of course the bacteria was not fully killed n the unthinkable it became resistant to the one that was working on it n it came back well was never fully dead. I'm so annoyed I didn't trust my instincts yet again n now I'm suffering although technical ly it's docs fault 4 ynderdosing. I think he thought it was viral or not that serious but it was bad enough to make me I'll n his dose not work. Iv since tried stronger dose amoxicillin, zinnat, doxycycline and co amiclav n nothing only dampened down symptoms a bit. I can't take this anymore. My lung is really tight n sore my whole lung n chest n iv got a headache n no enery n feel unwell so I just know it's still there. Upon each exam my doc days my lung is clear some infections simply do not produce lung sounds n that's a fact. I'm going back doc 2m as I can't live like this lung feels its getting tighter. Iv sharp pains on walking n when changing bed sheets yesterday lung very sore n struggling to perform n heart palps. I need an antibiotics that will work, any suggestions?? I'm so annoyed this could a been dead in the water weeks ago if only got 500mgs amox. Only think I can think of now is clarithmycin which I avoided at all costs coz it depletes potassium quite badly n iv just spent all year trying raise it which means I'll be back on the slow k which I hate taking but I think there's no options left. Also starting new job in 2 days n just cannot afford to be sick I'm working with children n need to be on ball. Iv been sick n battling with health probs for over a yr n can't take any more n if get called up in work I'll be embarrassed n affecting me further psychological ...anyone had this problem before???
