Could it be PCP
Jul 16, 2001

I had atypical pnemonia a year ago, recovered, but eversince I realised I am constantly short of breath, and can't seem to hold my breath. Did I have PCP and what should I do about my shortness of breath now. I am allergic to sulpur (bacterim).

Response from Dr. Feinberg

If you had had PCP a year ago and it wasn't treated correctly, I don't think you'd be writing e mails now. See your doctor for your persistent shortness of breath-- it may have an easily treatable cause, like asthma.

neuropathy or not?
