Hi, yes I have had breathing problems. It started with a cold, running nose, no headache, no temperature around beginning February 2021. Cough started
around 9th Feb. Initial xray showed inflamation and I had a persistent wet cough for about 5 weeks. Was given different antibiotics none of which helped. Amoxicillin, azithromycin, clarithromycin. I was then given steroids Prednisolone on 21 April for 9 days which gave me needed relief and stopped the cough.

Thank you for that additional information.

How can I be of service?

Expert:  wieyedoc replied 15 days ago.

I can provide a general answer with the information you have provided.

It sounds like you doctor is doing a good job so far treating your symptoms.

Should the cough and breathing problems continue I would consider having a MRI of your chest.

Does this make sense to you?
