It's a good idea. Did it feel like you weren't able to get a deep breath at all? And hurt your chest every time you tried? Like not even being able to yawn, and kind of wheezing?
This is hard to explain but normally when I take a deep breath I am inhaling for 6 seconds, I couldn't even do it for one second. My cheast didn't hurt the back of my rib cage did but that was from pulling muscles while coughing. I was not able to yawn, sneeze & even though I just said I pulled a muscle from coughing for the first 2 weeks I was not able to cough.
After being in the hospital for 7 days on oxygen when I got home I could barley make it up a set of stairs & when I did, I would hae to lay down for a few minutes to get my breath back. NOT fun. Supposedly my family could hear me trying to intake air.
Go to the Dr, don't be dumb like me & wait for it to get into the second lung. It might even be brochitus which you should be on antibiotics for anyway.

But I'm not coughing at all.. there's just this weird tingle that's like barely there.
I'm a trained singer and I know how to breathe.. and it's SO frustrating cause I'm getting in like 1/10th of my usual breath/.
I don't get what the big deal is, go to the Dr. You can have pnemonia & not know it. I know I don't know you but don't make me go ninga on your ass.
I just actually got back from the ER because of SEVERE kidney pain, and I mentioned that. The Doc was such a fucking prick, didn't even listen to my lungs, and sent me home with TYLENOL 3, after the MORPHINE they were giving me didn't fucking touch the pain. He was such a cocksucker. I hope his face melts off.
I'm going to go and see my Doctor, a real Doctor and not a walking herpes ridden penis, Tuesday.
I am glad your going to see your doctor, I am however sorry to hear about the kidney pain. This is odd, my liver is acting up & I am just getting better. You feeling sick & your kidney is not well. Things that make a person go hmmmmmm.
P.S. I will try to find you the story on the guy who jumped from the moving car to retrieve his cigarette. I saw it on TV however.
Thank darling, I'd like to read it. -- I'm trying to blow all the air out of my lungs to force a yawn, an I'm having this awful sea like cough. Is that what pneumonia was like for you?
I don't know what a sea like cough is and to be honest my first 3 weeks of having it I was so sick, I was a wee delusional & don't really remember a lot. I didn't eat, talk to anyone (mind you I had no voice) or do anything until I got out of the hospital May 12th. (I started feeling really sick April 23rd). Mind you I did lose 30 lbs & had a lot to say when I got my voice back lol.
My family realized that I was really sick when:
a) I left my house at 8am to get my nails done & was shocked that the place I went to didn't exist (to think I was driving in that state~ yikes)
b) When I recommended that the lady living in the attic move into the spare bed room as she was having problems keeping the wheels of her wheel chair balanced on the beams up there
c) When I was convinced that Ty Pennington was here & turned my neighbours house into a tree house for me
d) When I realized that none of the above was real but was positive the the Fab 5 (queer eye for the straight guy)had come & re did my boyfriend.
You got to love the fight or flight mode our bodies go into.
Here's the link to the smrt smoker, I have thrown in another one too, this just proves that some people should not be allowed out of their homes.http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/smoker_s_facehttp://www.wnbc.com/news/4539143/detail.html
Wow/ I will look at these when I'm a little more awake and less out of it myself, but that's some crazy halluciatntion sttt, Where you taing anythinG? Like drugs?
I was on antibiotics so they shouldn't have caused hallucination however I did have a high fever so that must have been it. Scariest part was I reqally had no clue that it wasn't normal LOL.
I understand. When I was in the hospital pregnant with my son I was on a morphine drip because of SEVERE complications. While awake at 3:30 in the morning my parents, and my best friend who at the time was hundreds of miles away materialized in my room and we all had a nice conversation until I reminded them that they needed to go back to bed, and grudgingly they agreed, they
Were you going to finish that thought? :o)
They dissapeared and I went to sleep, I think was the end of it. ;)
How was your Dr's appt? Everything ok in the lung / cheast area?
Bastard's on vacation. I called to have him work me in because he's great about that and he's on vacation this week. :(
How dare he go on vacation when I need him?
We're never going to get married if this keeps up.
