Thanks for your query.
See shortness of breath
along with coughing up of red rusty to dark red pain is suggestive of pneumonia. In that case before starting antibiotic you have to have a sputum Gram stain, Z-N (Zeihl-Neelsen stain) staining and pyogenic culture sensitivity teseting so that appropriate antibiotics can be started with fruitful result. Along with this i also advise you to have a chest x-ray PA view and routine blood tests (TLC,DC,ESR, Serum UREA,CREATININE
, SODIUM AND POTASSIUM) so that appropriate decision can be made whether you need hospitalisation or home treatment as per CURB-65 criteria.
I think abdominal pain
can be explained from same common source of infection with that ofvthe lung causing appendicitis
, gut infection etc. You need to have atleast an ultrasonography
(USG) of whole abdomen along with pelvic organs to exclude organic causes of pain abdomen.
I think with these work-ups you can find out the cause of your pain and chest problems so that appropriate treatment can be initiated to relieve your symptoms.
