Well that answers why I feel so crap, the doctor has just diagnosed pneumonia and has left some scripts ante biotics etc, she did say if it didn't respond quickly is have to go in hospital :(

Bad news Steve.

Try to avoid going in at the weekend, your chances of survival are higher if you go in when they have staff on :wink:

That's what happens when you venture outside in a Welsh summer wearing a t shirt!

Get well soon Steve.

Sorry to hear about the pneumonia Steve, I had the same diagnosis back in January trailed on for weeks befor diagnosis, however on a positive note once they sorted the type and dose of the medication out it responded very quickly, so hope it works for you and you get sorted soon.

Not good , as a COPD sufferer ( caused by industrial asthma) I know what you are going through.

Every minor cold develops into bloody chest infection ....

That is why I've just bought a place in Spain , so I can semi retire down there in the next 18 months ......
