Dear *****ient, because of the symptoms you mentioned, this is a respiratory infection.
If the lung capacity is decreased due to a restriction in this case is the result of a process that has not yet been overcome, it is likely that your immune system contains the infection but it is not enough because it may be a more resistant bacteria.
This is why it is necessary to confirm it by performing a physical examination of the lungs, as well as a chest X-ray and laboratories.
I therefore suggest that you see your doctor as soon as possible.
for the amount I suggest inhalers with Ipatropium bromide (atroven) 1 inhalation every 8 hours if breathing is difficult. but you must go to a doctor's office for the rest of your treatment, which includes an antibiotic.

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.
