I have been sick since April. First the flu, then bronchitis, now pneumonia. I am really tired, but have not been coughing. I thought it involved lots of coughing. I just can't breathe very well. I am on my fourth course of antibiotics, steroid inhaler and abuterol, and mucinex as well as ibuprofen.
In your experience, what can I do to heal this faster and regain my health. I don't feel as though I will ever be well.
I went back to the doctor today as I was having pain in my upper back and just felt really ill.
Not coughing, but I have pneumonia really bad. It is settled in my right lower lung and left upper lung. I feel like someone put a band around my upper body and is squeezing, like in a vice.
I am on my fourth course of antibiotics, it seems to get better, then come back harder. On inhalers and mucinex, steriods.
Please say a prayer for me. Thanks.

If you haven't been on prednisone or been hospitalized, you don't have pneumonia really bad. It just seems like it. I have genetic immune deficiencies and have had pneumonia many times. You may want to be tested for genetic immune deficiency diseases. Some diseases are adult onset. I wasn't diagnosed until I was 32.
