Steroids: It sounds like you might have Prednisolone from a prior medical encounter. Without doing an exam, it's impossible to say what the right treatment should be for your "tight chest." a tight chest could be heart issues or a lung problem. You should really be evaluated to make sure the treatment is correct for your current condition.

It is was prescribed for this episode go ahead and take the prednisolone, but if it was from a prior episode call your doctor for advice.
