I went to emergency the other night because my back pain was so severe.  After getting blood work and a chest x-ray, the diagnosis was lung infection and muscle spasms in my back.  When i cough, it hurts like crazy.  I can't lie down, it hurts too much and I can not breathe.  I hurts to breathe anyways, especially deep breaths.  I am coughing up some blood too.  I am taking muscle relaxants, tylenol 3, and a anti biotic to fight the infection.  I am taking my pain killers every 3.5 to 4 hours cause the pain is so unbearable.  Does anybody know how long this is suppose to last?  I feel like I am dying, I can't even sleep in my bed I am in a recliner in the living room.
