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?

Hello, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.
