It's been 7 wks now I have been suffering with breathing difficulties. X-ray confirms I have pneumonia, after 3 rounds of antibiotics and 2 rounds of steroids and a blue inhaler I'm still suffering. I'm not coughing as much but when I breath it hurts, a kind of burning irritated sensation. There has been a few jabbing lung pains too. At times I worry this is developing into something else i.e. Pleurisy or is this just part of the pneumonia clearing up. I don't know. My upper back is sore, appears to be muscular possibly due to breathing irregularities and using different muscles. I'm back at work, but only part time. I find walking, talking or generally exerting myself renders me breathless. I have a follow up X-ray end of this week or next, I'm waiting on the GP to confirm they've made the referral.
Any words of support and encouragement to get me through this. Today I'm feeling generally fed up with it all.
Thank you in advance for your words,
