I have been sick with a persistent, explosive cough that sounds like a trumpet is inside my chest and
my right side of my ribs is in constant pain and
not getting better. Since before Christmas when I thought I had bronchitis, two different antibiotics were tried. Since then, I have had three chest x-rays (normal, thank God); CT scan of the lungs (normal); two emergency room visits (I thought I was having a heart attack, couldn't breathe, gasping for breath).
