Bronchitis, prescribed Amoxyxillin for fever. Have chest pain under the breastbones. Why ?

Hello, My name is AAAA. I am a young 15 year old African American, who enjoys playing basketball, and having fun. I am writing you today on account of a little problem I have. About 3-5 weeks ago I went to the doctor to prove to my mom that I have bronchitis . As I figured, I was correct. Later on that night I had a very high fewer and was prescribed Amoxicillin . I believe this was about 3 weeks ago. I ve been struggling to take the anti-biotics everyday twice a day. I would forget or take one a day. I ve also been having chest aches under my breastbones, and both sides along with the middle of my chest. Today I had eaten about half of a lemon and drank a bottle of water, and the middle of my chest is just aching! On a scale of one to ten for pain its about a 5- Or 6. It s more of my anxiety which is kinda making it worst. I am about 175 lb. I was just wondering if this had anything to do with my bronchitis or if I had to get this kchecked out. Thank you for your time. Currently it Just settle down a little but its still present.

It seems that you might be having lower respiratory tract infection or chances of having pneumonitis.
At this stage if pneumonitis is there there migiht be having resolving stage giving rise to pleuritic pain.
Consult your doctor and complete the course of amoxicillin or your doctor might change the antibiotic.
If require go for x- ray chest to confirm the diagnosis.
Meanwhile take some analgesic tablet for symptomatic relief of pain.
Ok and take care.
