Hello My name is Jimmy. I am 41. I am from the United States. I was having chest and back pains in late April early may. Would come and go. I would have night sweats, chills, weakness and dizziness at times. At first I thought it was my Anxiety manifesting into physical issues. But It kept happening every couple of days. Would subside or improve a bit then come back. Well finally on May 9th I went to the Hospital emergency room. I thought it was heart issues. They did EKG checked my heart pulse. Took blood did an xray and CT scan. Turns out they said I had bilateral pneumonia. I was shocked. Because I wasn't coughing or anything like that. So they gave me 2 antibiotics And prescriptions. Azithromycin for 5 days once a day 250mg. And Cefdinir 300mg twice a day for 7 days. Cannot take amoxicillin because of getting C diff from it about 2 years ago. Which took four rounds of 3 different antibiotics to kill. And I still seal with what they call post IBS. Anyway after a few days on meds for pneumonia I began to feel better. ER doctor said I may have had pneumonia for a while. So he wanted me to get Xrays done in a few weeks with my family doctor. So after I got off the meds I was still feeling a bit off. Got Xrays done about a week later. They showed improvements. But still what they think is some pneumonia. Still had some discomfort in my back and chest. Well it is allergy season here and of course the day after my follow up I got allergies or sick. So I went back to the doctors because of having issues still pain and weakness almost like what a fever would make you feel. They gave me some medicine that you breathe through a machine at the docs office. And it helped clear up more of my breathing issues. But still pain in my back. Especially the day after the doctors visit. Because of all the breathing tests they made me do. And deep breathes while they listened to my lungs. Well they said I had allergies. Which I knew. So they had me get some flonaze nasal spray. gave me the prescription kind. Used it for a week. As well as a neti pot and began to feel a lot better. But for precautions they wanted me to get a CT scan on the 7th of this month. I felt great for the most part all week. Still some minor discomfort on my left side of my back and chest. But could finally sleep laying flat and also on my left side. (Forgot about that part for a while I couldn't sleep flat on my back or on my left side. Was extremely paunful.) Well I got the CT scan the other day. And was waiting to hear some good news. But last night the nurse called me and said they want me to go see a pulmonologist. That there are still marks on the scan And marks they didn't see before. So the pulmonologists office called me this morning. And I go in next Friday. So I am worried and fear the worst. What should I ask them when I go to see this specialist? And I know that you all cannot give me medical advice. But why would I be feeling better if I am not over pneumonia or worse? Has anyone had this issue before? I am no longer coughing. I have felt stronger in the past few days. Even had adrenaline rushes at times. I am confused as to what is going on. And can scar tissue from pneumonia cause discomfort in the chest and upper back? I used to smoke. But it was off and on. At most a pack a few days And that wasn't for very long. And I quit completely about 5 years ago.
