I have been feeling kind of tried and short of breath lately. I have a bit of a cough but otherwise feel okay. I went to myGP and he put me on azithromycin for 5 days and told me to come back if it doesn't clear up. My chest feels heavy and it feels like I have pressure on my back on the leftside. I have been on the antibotics for a couple of days and I am not any better. Should I just wait it out or should I call my Specialist?

You should call your specialist because the symptoms that you describe may correspond to a lung edema eventually because of a left heart failure. Claude Pfefferlé

Yes if you have this problem it needs to be treated ASAP. The attacks are fast.

photoqueen8, Just got out os the hospital yesterday, and feeling better. The doctors got thing under control really fast this time, but I was monitoring my blood pressure hourly for about six hour before I went in. As soon as my pressure was staying low we left for the ER.

Brenda has had a mucousy cough for 3 weeks can this be related to her disease. She's been on keflex for 2 weeks,

A chest infection set in before my last acute attack back in September 2009 and as mentioned above my ISCLS attack came on very very quickly. I hope all is well now ? Ruth P.S. I have also suffer a smaller ISCLS attack December 2009 however I did not have any infection present, attack started with very acute stomach pain.

Ask if you should be tested for a blood clot as these occur more frequently in SCLS patients. Very important and I am glad you are seeing someone right away. PRG
