Hey all, I caught a fairly serious case of Pneumonia in December and was absolutely out for the count for three weeks. I had to spend some time in the hospital once it got to a point where my throat was so swollen from the coughing combined with the pnuemonia meant I couldn't breathe.
Fast forward six weeks and i'm still not fully recovered although I am feeling a lot better.
The blood streaks in the phlegm have gone and I only cough extensively in the morning and night.
But the reason I'm here is because I'm a little concerned about the mild return of chest pain.
It was really bad for three to four weeks with the doctor's believing it was pleurisy and possible pericarditis.
But I took their advice, rest, anti inflammatory medicine and it's gone away enough to the point I thought it was gone.
However, the last few days there have still be random spikes of pain there, usually in the morning.
I'm turning 38 in a few weeks and although I will go back to a doctor if it gets worse again, I'm just curious if these recovery sounds normal.
