Question: New Breathing Troubles, worried
|turtlesti - Sun May 28, 2006 7:15 am||
Well after about 8 days of feeling better it all seemed to go to hell. On Saturday I was feeling like my usual breathing troubles, out of nowhere.
Today(Sunday) it is different. I feel this sensation in my throat, like I can feel it. Like I can feel my own tracea, through and through. Very weird. And it sortof feels like I am strangling/chocking myself, but not fully of course. I still feel as if I am getting adequate air but it feels pretty weird and it is worrying me, even as I type this I feel as if it is getting worse. Nothing really feels swollen, other than my tongue (maybe?). It's very odd, I am getting pretty frustrated over here and I am worried. I am almost ready to call off my trip and head home but I am concerned with being in the air for 11 hours if I am still feeling like this.
Currently I am monitoring it, it is Sunday evening. Hopefully I wont have to head to the hospital. I am looking forward to sleeping and hopefully feeling relieved in the morning. And I think regardless of how I feel I will visit a doctor tomorrow.
The URL to my last post if you wish to read the history of this thing.
Basically I've been in Thailand since May 3 and I have been feeling weird in the breathing category for most of my trip.
Thanks for any help.

I went to see the doc. He said I had nothing to worry about and that i should just take these drugs:
Roxithromycin (Rulid 150mg/Aventis) - 2 per day b4 breakfast
Serratio Peptidase (Takeda Danzen Tablets/5mg) - 1 with each meal
Now, on Monday after taking the drugs I felt pretty good. Tuesday I felt pretty good until 6pm and then over the next few hours I felt terrible and I came pretty close to heading to the hospital again, but it seemed to sort of clear up after a nice walk. Today I am feeling crappy, as if my problem is actually getting worse and that the pills are only relieving my symptoms and not fighting them, but I could be wrong. I'm on my 3rd day of the Roxi, shouldn't I be feeling like this thing is being killed already?
Thanks for your thoughts
