Following rheumy appt I was put on prednisolone 40mg and hydroxychloroquine 400mg a day. I came down with a common cold within 2 days and then due to asthma and previous pneumonia problems ended up in a&e with chest infection and fluid in my lungs. I've been on 2 different sets of antibiotics and the chest problems keep returning, mainly coughing up mucus and pain in back of chest, out of breath easily, the mucus builds up within days of finishing antibiotics. The last chest X-ray was clear but when the gp listens it still sounds like fluid. Tapering down the steroids and now on 20mg a day and the joint pain is returning, I'm not sure what to do, any thoughts?
