Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 30 years of patient experience and I am here to help you today.

I'm sorry you are suffering from breathing problems. You are being treated appropriately, but it will take a few more days before you start to feel relief. Try to stay calm and breathe slowly. If available, cool moist vapor from a humidifier will help with your breathing. Soft foods such as puddings, soups will also ease your swallowing difficulty. Hot liquids such as tea (non-caffeinated) or soup (chicken broth [the fat globules that float on top]are very soothing. You should feel much better in another 24-48 hours.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned your 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
