I am a 28 year old woman. About 4 or 5 weeks ago I began to have a tight feeling deep in my lungs that prevents me from breathing as deeply as I normally could. 3 weeks ago, I broke out in a 103 fever and decided to go the the Doctor, where I was prescribed a round of antibiotics. The fever went away at that time. I didn't miss a dose and took the entire bottle. My chest tightness and cough lingers. Especially at night, I wake up only being able to take very small breaths, coughs start out dry and work into very productive within the course of 10 minutes. Generally after I get all of the mucus out of my lungs my breathing improves by about 90 percent - there is still a bit of tightness and a very deep breath would still be painful and induce coughing.
