Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, I'm Dr Osula, do you have asthma or any other medical condition?
ok, just that it sounds like asthma attack to me. I'll advise you attend A+E urgently as sounds like infection that might need antibioitics and nebulisers if steroid tablets and inhalers have not helped
In the meantime, you can take up to 10 puffs of your blue inhaler 4 times daily
CRP is only slightly high but with fever and breathlesness, you'll need somethin extra, nebuilsers and maybe a brown steroid inhaler to go home with, possibly chest xray also
why are you not allowed?
So why dont you follow my advice, and go to A+E, so you can have a second opinion, as you need your heart rate, temperature, peak flow and chest checked out
Your haemoglobin is normal, and your neutrophil and CRP if very high would have indicated infection, but CRP is 7 and not high enough, but it coudl be its gradually rising.
In other areas, CRP of less than 10 is classed as normal, but the values on your paper is less than 5.
it could be viral based on the blood tests but without examining you, I cant say for sure.
No worries, but any chest tightness and breathlessness is classed as acute emergency and so should be seen by a Doctor same day
Hi, You saw one doctor, That doctor does not represent all the other doctors. Go and get a second opinion unless you're feeling better in yourself
Have you had a chest xray?
ok, you'll need a chest xray also, you should request for that,
Anything else I can help you with?
ok no worries, if your symptoms do get worse, then make sure see a Dr. Feel free to leave feedback rating if happy with my service, thanks
You would never know unless you try, but they wont be able to do any xrays for you there. I don't think a trial of 5-day antibiotic would do any harm. Though its difficult to determine if you do need one without seeing you in person
Is the breathing better?
Did you have the antibiotics?
yes, regardless of xray result, a bit of antibiotic wont hurt, keep pushing
drink lots of fluids, and try not to stand up too often, and get up slowly
Sorry to hear, that, just make sure you are still being seen by the doctor in that case to monitor your progress
