I have been battling pneumonia for over a month. Just went to my M.D. today - again. He had me say e several times, while listening to my lungs through his stethoscope. He said it sounded like a inside, and that was a sign of congestion in the lungs. I had never heard of this. He called it something, but I can t remember what! I have had 2 doses of Z pack, one 10 day stretch of Levaquin, steroids for 15 days, and now he prescribed a double z-pack. I am so weary! What else should we be doing?

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.
