The story goes as follows. I'm 20 years old, in good health After a trip in which i had been exposed to some considerable amount of draft and cold, I began experiencing breathing disconfort and some shooting aches in my chest area. I went to see a doctor as soon as i got home. He told me I had a nevralgy in my chest muscles and those interfered with breathing too, also he said I had a upper respiratory infection. He gave me antibiotics, but the symptoms didnt go away. I got a number of unsuccesful treatments with mild antibiotics. After 3 weeks the symptoms are still here. Accopanied by headaches and other flu like symptoms. Another doctor now sais its pneumonia, after looking at an x-ray. I dunno I'm a lil freaked cause it lasts so long and I have no caugh, no fever, which would be classic symptoms of pneumonia.

If anyone has any ideas, I would be really grateful.
