Suspected Lung infection

Evening everyone!

After a good session reading and saying hello to you this morning, I had a reasonable day setting myself small targets, then going for a walk with a friend and having a type of afternoon brunch out (even though I did have breakfast this morning).

I had been feeling a lot better.

This evening however I have been coughing quite badly again and feeling low and tired with that strange feeling in my throat / chest again.

I still have the sensation of some sort of blockage in my throat.

I have finished clarithromycin and await another chest x-ray in 4 weeks time.

I suppose we all go through up's and down's.

I would hardly think I have a second infection.

We also got caught in light rain for a short time today.

Any comments welcome.

I will try and go to bed early I think.

I hope you all have a good night.

Kind regards,

Aidi-Joll 🐝💤

  • hi try Vicks rubbed on your chest.some steam inflation.:-)

  • Thanks Flax. Good idea!

  • If you still don't feel right, pop back to the gp just to make sure you don't need a second course of tablets to completely clear the infection.

    Take care x

  • Thanks. I'll monitor things tomorrow and pop back Monday if no improvement.



  • I always feel worse in the evening & at night. Hopefully you'll feel better again in the morning. If you go back to your GP next week, it might be an idea to take a sputum sample to send off for culturing, to make sure you're on the right antibiotics

  • Hi Aidi-joll

    It's good that you were feeling a bit better during and after your walk ,it sounds like this was good for you and you enjoyed it.

    Maybe the fresh air and exercise loosened up the chest and Took a lot of your energy , you will have a clearer picture in the morning after a night's rest

    If things are not good then you will need to make a visit to your GP

    But let's hope you are feeling better soon

    Take care


  • Hi AJ sometimes we need another round of antibiotics before the chest clears.

    I don't know if you are on oxygen but if you are Vicks is a no no its dangerous.

    take care hope you are feeling better today

    take care
