Just before Christmas I started with a chest infection. I have asthma so I am prone to chest infections. At the same time I started with a bad shoulder pain, which felt like toothache. I tried all types of natural therapy such as high doses of vitamin c, 3000mg per day. Garlic supplements, high doses, and also went to see my gp, who gave me antibiotics. She also said that the pain could be an infection in my lungs. I had to go back to my gp a week later and gave me a stronger antibiotic. My breathing has now improved, and the pain is a little better. I am trying to get natural ways to improve my immune system when I finnish the course of antibiotics.
