Lungs are weak

Lungs r weak and need oxygen and and he has prescribed lots of medicines but no improvement. I was taking a lot of antibiotics for fifteen days as i had a fever which was not getting normal

Chest pain

I’m having pains in the left side of my chest, under and more on the right side of my left breast. The pain is so quick and makes me unable to breathe because it’s more painful to breathe when it’s happening. The all of a sudden pain/ tightening is happening more often now. Multiple times a day and I’m getting scared. The pain is starting to radiate to the left side of my back/ neck and shoulder area. I also get really flushed/ hot when it starts happening sometimes.

Repeated chest infections

I have had a two chest infections and three different courses of antibiotics (amoxycilin, anthromycin and doxycycline) in the past month but my cough still won't abate. Every time I finish a course of antibiotics after which I feel better, within a couple of days the fevers and cough return. The cough produces phlegm and triggers my asthma leaving me lightheaded and breathless. It is very frustrating and I am and wondering what to do. It is not whooping cough as I have been tested from it.
