Hi.. I have copd moderate to severe and have in the last 16 days I have got a chest infection. I went to gp who give me amoxillin. 2x500mg twice daily. I eent back after a week as I was no better, if anything worse. He then gave me prednisolone 5 mg tabs. 6 a day all in one go. 1 weeks supply but no antibiotics, back to dr again as still no better. This time he has given me clarithromycin 500mg twice daily plus another course of prednisolone. Then he frightened me to death by sending me for xrays. I have to go on Monday 9:15am. I am scared to death. I have health related ocd and gad plus severe treatment resistant depression. I have totally convinced myself I have lung cancer and its doing my head in. Im taking valium like its gone out of fashion ( 40mg daily ) Im only supposed to take 15mg.. Im not coughing up blood and not lost any weight. I just cough up clear phlegm, sometimes its a bit yellow. Why has he sent me for xray unless he thinks I havee lung cancer
Thanks for listening
