My left lung is still a little rattley, which is slightly disconcerting. A hit from my inhaler took care of it, though.

I really don't like being aware of my lung as a distinct part of my body. Just seems wrong.

Maybe you should go to Urgent Care?

Have them listen and do a quick xray and make sure it hasn't progressed to pneumonia.

It clears as soon as I take my inhaler, and I feel so much healthier than I did before. So I don't think it's anything to worry about yet. But I'll definitely be keeping my eye on it!

Thanks for the caring.

I don't actually have a memory of not being aware of my lungs as distinct body parts. I thought everyone was.

Feel better. If you keep feeling that way, even if the inhaler keeps fixing it, you need to have it checked. The inhaler is fixing a problem. The problem should be going away. It could progress to pneumonia, but the inhaler would keep fixing it in the short term, so don't rely on that as an indicator that you don't need to be checked, okay? Give it only as many days as you keep feeling marked improvement. If your fever comes back, call the doctor.

This from your SERIOUSLY educated on the subject lifelong severe asthmatic and former respiratory therapist friend.

Love you!!!

When I'm recovering from a difficult bronchitis, it is always worse for me at night and first thing in the morning. At night you're tired and in the morning you're congested from the build up all night. So that seems normal to me.

Sure, you had to go and mention the word fever, didn't you?

99.8 right now.
