Thread: Chest infection and throat SERIOUS

    Chest infection and throat SERIOUS

    So Iíve come back from the A&E after I went to due to wheezing and I felt as though I couldnít breathe. I also had a fever and felt unwell. I already had a flu 2 weeks before with similar symptoms but this time I had sinus issues and it was a problem for 2 days along with a very bad chesty cough and wheezing.
    I had my tests done
    No Covid
    Nothing serious either Iím starting a chest infection or just ending one I was told.
    I was told Its unlikely have pneumonia despite when I got home whenever I cough (as I have been non stop coughing for hours)
    My throat keeps making this bubbling gurgling sound which is very uncomfortable and when I searched what it was google said itís something called bibasilar crackles which is caused by pneumonia I also have sharp chest pains now.
    I donít know what to do cause I just came back from the A&E

    I’m assuming they listened to your lungs while at A&E? It’s pretty easy for them to hear pneumonia in the lungs. I get bronchitis all the time that causes wheezing and weird gurgling noises in my throat and upper chest. Also get chest pains from strained muscles because of all the hacking and coughing. Have you taken your temperature? Assuming they also did that at A&E

    I'm sorry, Delilah, that sounds so horrible!

    Keep an eye on it, but trust the A&E people for now.

    Yeah Iíve been prescribed antibiotics by my gp and he checked the records and said I should deffo be on them I took one and itís amoxicillin.

    Overdose?

    I have been taking 500mg amoxicillin every 4 hours with 3 tablets a day, not knowing I was actually supposed to take it 8 hours a day.
    Iím so scared is this dangerous?

    I don’t see why not. I have loads of times. I think most antibiotics say avoid grapefruit juice but I’ve always done orange juice regardless of any meds I might be on.

    Re: Overdose?

    NHS website recommends speaking to a medical professional just in case, that's probably a good idea to be on the safe side.
