A few weeks ago I started having a weird feeling in my chest about an inch lower than my sternum, like pressure. I had really bad acid reflux, and it started feeling like my breathing was off. It was tight when I inhaled and released air quite rapidly. It wasnt a calm smooth exhale. Just all at once. I also have a constantly elevated temperature (99.3-100) and get tired early. And I had been coughing up clear mucous like phlegm, and my bronchial area seemed constricted. But no chest congestion.
I went to my doctor and he told me I probably had bronchitis, and GERD. He gave me Zantac to take 2 x a day and cough medecine, and Azithromycin. My heartburn is somewhat better, i still have a temperature and feel tired sometimes, have a feeling of pressure along the bottom of my rib cage, and my breathing is better, but still not right.
Seems to me like I have some sort of infection. I had a chest xray the other day, and everything in there was fine. I dont know what it could be, but Im getting rather worried as this has been going on for a few weeks. Its better than it was but not gone. The breathing and the pressure are especially annoying.
Any ideas on what this may be?
