how long to get over chest infection?
I have just been diagnosed as having a chest infection I have a shortness of breath especially if I need to go out in the cold, I have had night sweats although these have stopped since being on antibiotics and a tightness of the chest and pain in my upper back.

I have had previous chest problems when I was a baby and apparently stopped breathing on several occasions this has made me very cautious when I have any problems with my chest as my mum is always telling me how I nearly died several times when I had a chest problem when I was a baby.

My question is how long before I should start feeling better as I want to make sure it doesn't get any worse as I don't think I can take my mum panicing over me for too long. I started the antibiotics 2 days ago should I start to see improvement soon?
