Important Facts & FAQs
How Do I Know If I Have A Chest Infection?
You should suspect you have a chest infection when you feel sick, have a cough, and often have pain in the front of your chest when you cough along your airways. You may also have a fever, muscle aches, and may have a sore throat or sinusitis, among other symptoms.
Can A Chest Infection Be Dangerous?
A chest infection can be dangerous if it develops into pneumonia where the infection has affected the lungs. Chest infections can be dangerous if they cause a high fever and confusion. Serious complications can also occur, including but not limited to pulmonary embolism – blood clots in the lungs.
What Does It Mean If I Get Repeated Chest Infections?
Having recurrent chest infections can be a sign of, among other things, an underlying lung condition, a vitamin deficiency, or an immune deficiency. It is helpful to see a chest infection specialist to rule out such conditions and see if anything can be done to treat and prevent recurrent infections.
