Hiya all, Not sure if this is the correct place for this. I saw my PM doctor end of august, been waiting to have facet joint injections, he decided to do them, as he said the scar tissue is to bad to have an epidural. So yesterday they rang and said can you come on monday! As soon as she heard my voice she said im sorry theres no way he will do them ( you see i have had flu, and a bad cough, my voice comes and goes, but this is the third week ive had this now)she said you need to see a doctor, so as soon as i ended the call i booked in. So this morning i saw the doctor she examined me, listened to my chest, she said i have pneumonia, i have coughed so much that i have jarred my lungs, she gave me some antibiotics and an inhailer, she said cough medicine would not help, as its my lungs. I never get a cold(sniffle) , i always get flu, this happens about every five years, then i get a continious cough and end up with pneumonia. The pain in my back is so bad and all this coughing does not help. I feel so low and weak. Sorry for moaning about this , just needed to rant! thankyou for reading this post!
