Apologies v hard to write on this mobile. How would a fungal infection start?
Do you mean a cat scan of the chest? Would a fungal infection cause all the symptoms including the excessive secretiosecretions/mucus tinnitus (which started after an infection in Oct 2013) the pain, wheezing, palpitations, and difficult breathing? The previous doctor thought it was asthmatic bronchitis. The previous round of antibiotics helped but the symptoms returned 2 weeks later.
OK thank you. I'm worried it is more serious as breathing is so hard. The pain too, excruciating, actually taking oxycodone to manage it but it's still there even through that. I'll ask for the CAT scan. If it was fungal, what is the treatment? Is there anything I can get to reduce the excessive mucus/congestion and also to breath more easily? Thanks v much.
But I've had 4 courses of antibiotics and still have all the symptoms. Which would work for this? Is it normal to need 30mg of morphine to manage pain from a fungal infection then? Really need a solution but won't be able to have a scan until Monday, the results another week on. Thank you again.
I will and am going into Dr next week to arrange tests. Worried it is COPD or asthmatic bronchitis though not sure if that explains the fluttering/pulpitations. Presumably to see if it's fungal is through treatment?
What antibiotics have anti-fungal properties? I've taken levaquin, amoxilin, and amoxy clav so far. The only one that had an effect was the levaquin but the symptoms returned after 2 weeks. Should I opt for your extra help or is your advice as above and that it is best to go to see the Dr and get the OTC mucinex?
Thanks so much for all your help. :)
