Last week I had to run to the ER for shortness of breath and was admitted overnight with asthmatic bronchitis. I've smoked for 40 years but quit 3 months ago. I never had more than a flu in my life. This started as a cough (cold symptoms) and progressed into an excess sputum, wheezing, and shortness of breath only 3 days before I had to go to the ER. After a regiment of IV drugs and breathing treatments I was breathing good, still bringing up alto of phlem, but feeling good. Today is 4 days since I been discharged and I still have cough with excessive phlem, wheezing when exhaling, and shortness of breath, not to mention felling like crap. Does anyone know how long could possibility go on for... :confused:I need to go back to work...Thanks for any input:)
