Respiratory diagnoses

I was diagnosed with chronic bronchitis last year and have been trying to get rid of my acute bronchitis for a month which yesterday I was diagnosed with pneumonitis.  I have asthma and pleurisy also.  Antibiotics aren't working.  What if anything can I do to get rid of it?

Um, The same exact thing happens to me. I'm not a medical professional or anything, but when you take a deep breath sometimes your ribcage will crack much like your knuckes will. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
