The Cause Of Breathing Every Day Feels Heavy For 3 Months And Do You Need An X-ray?
Good night. I want to ask. I am 24 years old. I used to have a cough with phlegm for almost a month. I consume cough syrup. Still not recovered. After an X-ray, the results are bronchitis and the doctor says nothing leads to tuberculosis. After that, I took 4 days of cefixime antibiotics and mucos cough medicine. After that recover. After a month my breath is often heavy .. If breathing is often heavy. Almost every day for 3 months … That’s why. Do I need another x-ray or not. If necessary Isn’t it dangerous to rotgen often? Thank you doctor
