Shortness of breath AND fevers???

Help me? †I was in the hospital about 6 weeks ago for a bad bronchial viral infection that caused me major shortness of breath. †I was there for 5 days... †The virus gave me asthma which I've never had. †Since coming home, I've †had daily low grade fevers, body aches, bit of a cough, shortness of breath, and major fatigue. †I saw an infectious disease doc last week and he had some things retested. †First round of bloodwork (including my TSH) came back normal other than showing rather high levels of inflammation. †I just want to get better!! †What's wrong with me? †Before this, I was a fairly active person...and now I barely have the energy to fold a load of laundry.

Re: Shortness of breath AND fevers???

Probably just some lingering bug. Are you seeing a pulmo for the asthma?

All depends on what it is...the pulmo will help determine if it's really asthma and give you meds to help with that.
