Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

What I understand from your query is that, at present there is no fever, temp of 38 was only there on the first day. Your throat infection is better. At present you have pain in the chest and upper back when you cough. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I would advise you to do steam inhalation 4-5 times a day.
Drink plenty of warm fluids throughout the day.
Have a teaspoon of honey mixed with a pinch of pepper powder. It might provide some relief.
Do continue your medication calvepen as prescribed by your doctor.

Pneumonia normally presents with high grade fever, cough with rusty(brown) sputum and chest pain. If these symptoms are present , I would advise you to visit your doctor at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query.

Get well soon :)

Regards,
Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
