i had a week's worth of antibiotics for chest infection and mastitis combo (lovely!). it was my second round of antibiotics - apparently i was given wrong ones at first.
the thing is, finished second lot of antibiotics on tuesday and mastitis flared up tues lunch and i'm still feeling breathless.
keeping mastitis under control by feeding dd2 for up to an hour in the morning (really draining breast) but this is unsustainable, i'm on hols this week but back at work next week and want to start weaning her off bf - not increasing amount (she's 14 months).
i still feel tired and achey and breathless... but don't know which infection is causing what symptom and if i should hang fire before returning to gps.

sorry long post but anyone any thoughts?!

I would go back to the GP.
You don't seem 'cured' just yet and shouldn't be breathless if the chest infection has cleared up.

You def need to go back to the gp - you poor thing you sound really run down.

symptoms not resolved after treatment or expected length of time = back to GP.

(I would be quite happy to see you if you were my patient).

Hope you feel better soon
