I started a thread a week or so ago about colds/coughs/antibiotics/tylenol etc ... (thanks everyone for their responses there) ... anyway, it turns out that I have pneumonia. I've been on antibiotics about a week now and have improved somewhat but still can barely do much more than move from the bed to the family room. I am supplementing with lots and lots of probiotics/kefir/fermented milk products etc, but wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this. I am just soooooo exhausted, and started to get worried about money (I'm a freelancer, and my husband is out of work, so when I don't work, we don't get paid). Money concerns aside (it will all work out I know, the most important thing is my health and the health of little babe), I'd love to know if anyone has been through this ... how long will it take for me to feel better? Yesterday I felt lots better, until last night, when I just started having coughing fits again. And today much worse. It's not terrible pain like it was but I don't feel like I am improving. Anyway just putting it out there in case anyone has had a similar experience and could shed some light on the situation! Luckily the infeciton was only in my rght lung - the pulmonologist said Thursday that it had cleared up some with the abx but there was still some infection in there.
Thanks in advance for your support!
All the best
