ive spoken to doctors they have prescribed me doxycyclline but i feel alot better, my chesty cough has gone no sinus pain or pressure and i can taste and smell again

That was likely a bacterial infection.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I havent took them yet he prescribed them on Wednesday its now friday and im due to collect them
But dont even think i need them now as im feeling alot better and 70% of my symptoms have gone or eased

I thought you felt better after taking them.

If you do not feel cured, then you need to take them.

Hello

As all the blood tests, ECGs, chest X rays have come normal, it is not heart attack.

There can be muscle pain, costochondritis etc.

Please do not worry.
