Hi all I'm 19 weeks pregnant after a week of on and off headaches popping sinuses and weird smells I then began to have the feeling I'm suffocating /breathing fumes ( I know weird)

Saturday night I felt exhausted I had rib ache and woke upearly hours with throat and chest pain in the morning I awoke to wheezing and a feeling my throat is full I hacked up yellow and green so thought chest infection then today ive again coughing constantly and wheezing constantly feeling ny throat full but no so much the mucus even though it's still there may be harder to get up does this sound like a chest infection they is no way I can get to doctors today no transport and its a 40 min walk and downpours I do have a inhaler I need to pick up tomorrow because I rnag to ask for one to see if its asthma again but I also have my scan tomorrow so can't make a doctors appointment anyone know what this could be / sound familiar ?

    Steph it does sound like an infection. You poor thing. One thing if you are in England the junior doctors are on strike tomorrow, so things may be busy at the hospitals.

      The junior doctor strike tomorrow excludes emergencies luckily, although the ones on the 8th Dec and 16th Dec are all out strikes. I don't know the effect they will have. I would have thought most GP surgeries will not have anyone on strike though, it will be the hospitals. Hope your scan goes well tomorrow.

    I'm so sorry, definitely sounds like infection!!!! If you have fever can be pnuemonia not to scare you. Get it checked out immediately though. Especially because you're pregnant!!!! For now hot steamy baths or stand in bathroom to breath in steam! This helps infections and any breathing issues you have due to infection!!! Very best of luck to you. Also call your dr emergency after hours or off work. Docs will take things like this seriously.
