Hi,

This is my first post. I am having some problems and wondered if anyone else has experienced the same problems. Three weeks ago I started getting sick with a lung congestion. I was given Levaquin. Half a week later I was REALLY having trouble sucking air and
went back to the doctor. They said I had a very bad case of bronchitis and perhaps a bit of pneumonia. I was given a shot of steroids, a shot of epinephrine, two breathing treatments and a prescription for Biaxin. About another half week after that, my husband took me back to the doctor and they gave me two big shots of penicillin. Well, I have stopped coughing up green stuff (sorry), but I just can't get my strength back. I believe that my illness was probably mostly viral (flu?) because the antibiotics did not seem to work well this time. I still have a bad case of laryngitis, headaches and fatigue. I am not sure what to do next. I have a history of problems with my immune system and I do not think the clinic doctors really get this. I don't know how to find a better doctor. It has been suggested to me that perhaps I am still not breathing well and the lack of oxygen is making me tired. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for me?

Thanks,
Cathy
