Rest as much as possible today & take plenty pain relief with you. How long have you been on antibiotics? Fingers crossed they'll kick in soon. Try to have a rest at centerparcs each day & if you can't make it out, get your other half to look after the kids.

Fingers crossed your antibiotics will kick in anytime soon and you'll be feeling much better on your break flowers

I would have expected the abx to have started working by now. I think it's worth ringing the gp as they might want to change them/get you a chest X-ray. Sorry you're feeling so ill sad

What would a chest xray be for wrecktangled?

I'm in such a panic and so upset ☹️

It can show the infection and pneumonia I think. Shows how bad it is etc

I'm so sorry twinklz, I'm getting over a chest infection at the moment and I agree with a PP that you should go back to your GP, the antibiotics should have started working by now, and the fever/chills should have gone at least. You might need a longer course of antibiotics, or a different type.

Definitely get back in touch with gp. 4 days on you should be turning the corner to health again,not feeling worse and shivery etc.

And hope you get well soon.

The gp said to finish the full 7'day course and then phone them ☹️

Hi everyone,

I had a phone call from the gp. They said that they've had the result from My sputum sample and that I need to change antibiotics.

The sample showed that I have influenza - I told her that I thought you don't have anitibiotics for the flu and she replied 'bacteria'?

Hi everyone,

Just an update. They told me I had haemophilis influenza and that's why they gave me doxycycline.

Thanks for everyones advice
