Feb 15, 2005

I had bronchitis last week. Most symptoms have gone, except the coughing from junk in my chest.

My labs were all great at my last trip to the doctor.

My question is how worried should I be about this turning into some form of pneumonia? I had the pneumo-vax shot (or whatever it is called) about three years ago. SHould I be concerned?


Response from Dr. Horwath

If the cough persists or you develop other symptoms (like fever, chills, chest pain), then you should consult your doctor immediately.

In commited relationship and fear of being hiv positive
How quickly do symptoms appear ?
