Last week Thurday, Oct 13, 2011. I was diagnosed with Bronchitis. They prescribed me with steroids, amoxcillin, an asthma pump and Azthromycin. Today is Oct 20, 2011. I still have a little cough and feel a little woozy. No fever. The reason I am writing, I like to jog. I tried yesterday and my chest was burning and I feel like I still have Bronchitis. Did it get worse? Should I go back to the doctor? Please help

PS I am also a smoker. I have barely smoked since I had this, but when I do. I kind of feel short of breathe.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Smoking leads to bronchitis and it take some weeks till full recovery provided smoking is out of the routine. You can jog but try not to over burden yourself. See if it helps.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
