Taking Augmentin, back and chest tenderness. Could it just be my lungs?

I have been diagnosed with a sinus infection and ear infections as of last Wed. The doctor put me on Augmentin . I have been experiencing tenderness in my back and lowerr chest . It feels like my organs are hurting. Last night I couldn t breathe so I went to the ER. They ruled out any heart problems and said that I have bronchitis and also had an ashtyma attack. I am worried that something is being missed because my midsection has this dull pain. Could that just be my lungs? I have had augmentin before though and it seems to make my organs hurt.

The pain could be because of coughing due to bronchitis or asthma. However you should get a xray chest done to rule out any other lung pathology. If it is normal, continue your treatment for bronchitis. You may take a pain killer. It will be alright in due course of time.
