Thanks everyone for the good advice! I just started my prednisone this morning so we'll see how it goes.
I had a rough night last night. I was awake all night with shortness of breath and chest tightness. I used my rescue inhaler which helped relieve some of it but then it made me jittery and stay up longer. And it didnt get any better this morning when I went to work. I have just been exhausted and weak and very short of breath and had a tight chest all morning. I took my daily inhaler and my prednisone but I have also had to use my rescue inhaler a couple of times. Hopefully the prednisone will help soon...I have never felt like this before for so long.
If you are not better in about two weeks, I would make an appointment to go ahead and see your doctor. I would rather you be on the safe side. I am not a physician, just a volunteer who has gone through a lot of asthma, allergies and now bacterial pneumonia. I don't want you to take the chance of getting sicker when an office visit might take care of it.
