Here in northwestern US, wildfires kept the air polluted for several weeks this summer (Blocked out the sun and made for spectacular red sunrises and sets.).
With the heavy smoke, I started having allergy/asthma symptoms which morphed into chest pain. A trip to my gp landed me in emergency hospital for possible heart attack. Good news, no heart attack , but bad news, pneumonia.
This is the 2nd pneumonia I've had this year!! Has anyone else experienced increased upper respiratory disorders like asthma and pneumonia with PMR?
This is year four, on 6 mg prednisone, and trying to get to a good place to continue taper. I've had pneumonia vaccine.
Thanks for any thoughts J
