I’ve seen two doctors over the last two weeks, the first one diagnosed pneumonia and gave me antibiotics, steroids and inhaler. A week later a second doctor said the only way to diagnose pneumonia is with X-ray, which I haven’t had. He talked about the semantics of pneumonia and lower respiratory tract infection amounting to the same thing really, so I’m not sure which I’ve had.He prescribed a different antibiotic. Although I’m generally not feeling too bad, and I’m managing to get some sleep, the cough and phlegm is really starting to get me down. The phlegm starts greenish first cough of the day, then changes to white.
I’m doing steam inhalations, drinking honey and lemon and doing active breathing exercises. I’d be grateful for any further advice on ways I can clear my lungs of this wretched stuff. Thanks.
