I have been dealing with what I believe is/was a lung infection for the last week and between work and the extreme cold weather, it hasnt been all that much fun. Came close to calling 911 twice but my meds finally kicked in (after 3 to 4 rounds of my reliever, yeah, I know to much!!! ) and the panic subsided it was ok.
I am now dealing with a localized lung/chest pain on the right side. Now I have always had chest pain with my attacks, most of the time I think it is soreness from coughing and coughing and coughing!!!! I dont know if maybe if I had a touch of pneumonia or whether it maybe have had something more than just Lung infection.
Using Bricanyl (reliever) and Symibort (preventitive).
Ok, silly question but I find that the majority of the time that whether it is a cold or influmation or just a rough day...it seems to only effect the right lung...now is that my imagination or can asthma affect only one lung?
I am curious if anyone finds that if they are extremely tired, say to many hours at work, or back to back shifts, etc. that sometimes your asthma will rear its ugly head...shortness of breathe, and a full attack???
