Hi, im new on here. About a week ago I woke up with a high fever that lasted for 24hrs. All of my kids had the same, I was the last to get it. I noticed that day that I was having trouble getting a deep breath. A few days later the inability of getting a deep breathe was still present so I quit smoking. After 2 full days of not smoking, or having the urge to due to not being able to breathe, I went to the doctor. There he told me it sounded like anxiety, offered me a prescription for xanax, which I turned down and that was that. An hour later I was still having a difficult time so I went to the ER. They did blood tests for blood clots, blood cell counts and so one as well as a breathing treatment, an IV steroid and a chest xray. Everything came back normal and clear so they diagnosed me with bronchitis and gave me prednisone and proair inhaler. This morning I woke up with a pain in my upper back, around shoulder blade, still hard time breathing deep breaths and an excruciating headache. Is it possible I have a missed pulmonary embolism or is this intact how bronchitis is diagnosed and acts? I forgot to mention I have NO cough...only when using inhaler. Thank you!
