Bronchospasm

2 Wks ago I went to my Doc and he said I had Bronchitis, Laryngitis and Pharyngitis. He gave me penicilan and cortisone. I started feeling better but had terrible chest pain. Last wkend I was getting out of breath after walking small distances. I went back to my Doc. He did x-rays and told me I have Bronchospasm. He has put me back on cortisone for 25 days and anti-inflammotories and told me to continue with my inflammide pump (I''m asthmatic). I still have a lot of pain in my chest. I wake up at night from it. How long will this take to clear up and when can I start excercising again?

Hallo Lisa
What kind of chest pain is it - when you cough, or is it a sharp pain when you breathe in? It is difficult to predict how long this will take to clear up without seeing x/rays or having examined you - your doctor will be able to answer this. You can only start exercising when you have no muscle pain, fever or shortness of breath.
