How long do crackles last?
I was diagnosed with what was possibly a viral pneumonia, although my chest xray was clear and the doctor told me my lungs were clear.  I finished a course of Zithromax, and feel like I am slowly getting better. It's been 3 weeks...just had a dry cough, malaise and tiredness, some shortness of breath. However, I am a nurse and can hear  inspiratory crackles in my right middle lobe, where it is painful.  How long do these crackles last and is there anything I should be doing besides taking fluids and resting? How can lung xy be clear with crackles present?
