Hi. I'm 16 years old and for around 5 weeks I have had a tight chest and breathing difficulties, so bad that we once called the ambulance however, I was re assured I wasn't having a heart attack so we decided that I should ride it out. I have visited the doctors many times, because it hadn't improved, and I have had a chest x ray (which was clear) the doctors seemed to think I had asthma, as I had it as a child so it might've returned, so I was given an inhaler and put on a course of antibiotics and 1 set of steroids. I did start to get better but still not perfect so I went back to the doctors where he checked again to see if my chest was clear (it was clear the first time) and he said that I have a chest infection and that is why I feel like it's hard to breathe, therefore he put me on another course of antibiotics and told me to use my inhaler when needed. The doctor did say it would take up to 3 months to feel better. I have improved very well in the last week and I am even getting back to college now, however the cold weather has been making it hard for me to get a full deep breath and I have been having a tight chest and sometimes a sharp pain on my left side. I think I will be visiting the doctor again if the feelings don't stop next week.
I was just wondering if anyone has experienced the same thing or if they have any advice on how to get better? I really need some reassurance!!
