Chest Infection

I have been suffering from a nasty chest infection since June. Went to drs and they said it was Pleurisy and gave me anti biotics etc.

I just wondered if anybody else has suffered from this?

I have started back training but the symptons keep coming back!

It looks like another trip to the docs and no training!

    Pleurisy can be caused by another infection. Have you had flu or a cold?

    It takes a long time to get rid of. I had it in both lungs that was caused by a blood clot and bi lateral pneumonia all at the same time. It nearly killed me with the other complications I had. I collapsed at home when my wife was out and would have been a gonner if she hadn't turned up earlyand phoned an ambulance. I had to give up cycling and anything strenuous until my lungs had cleared up.

    Trust me when I say, let it clear up before going mad cycling it won't hurt for a few weeks :wink:
