Went to Dr's due to chest infection. Expected to be given antibiotics but Sent to hospital? Pneumonia. Was admitted put on Iv abx. Consultant said not pneumonia, xray showed lower respiratory infection with signs of COPD. I was in total shock. Could this be right? I don't have asthma, just hay fever and Gord. I will be sent for a spirometry check at some point. I am at home now and on prednisone 30mg, amoxycillin 1gm and doxycillin 100mg. Thank you for any help. Pam
PS I first found out I had Hayfever 10 years or so ago.
