What Does My X-ray Report Indicate?

Question: Hi.
For the past 5 weeks I have had a chest rattle cough. There has been phlegm and a bit of nose and ear congestion.
I was sent for an x ray that came back clear on the left side but they didn’t do right hand side.
There are no other symptoms. Maybe a bit of tirednesS.
Is this something I should worry about?

On a side note I had a one night stand 6 weeks ago. Is this chest cough a symptom of any type of primary HIV infection?? Sorry I am a worrier.

Thank you

Brief Answer:
Not related to HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Safarob,

Welcome to HCM.

Cough with sputum along with nose or ear congestion is non specific for HIV. It may occur due to some sort of chest infection nothing else. Consult your physician, go for some blood investigations to isolate the cause and follow the treatment regime. For any further query feel free to ask me again.

Thank You
