i had asthma since about age 20. About 3 years ago (age 35) i got a chest infection and since then i have had this very phlemy cough… all the time. It’s awful. I cant do anything because of my cough it is stopping me living. I been trying to lose weight but i even cough every minute at rest. I saw à respiratory specialist who said oh it’s just because of your asthma and your weight but (160cm/120kg) i know loads of people bigger than me with asthma and they dont have any symptoms as bad as mine.
i feel so alone in this as i think people look at me and are disgusted by my constant disgusting cough.
Anyone have similar symptoms as me? Do you think i have been misdiagnosed?
i sent in a sample of phlegm and it came back no problems said it more than likely part of my health condition I have copd. I have cough medicines which sometimes soothsayer it. Had the cough since before the pandemic. I have learned to live with. I see consultant every 6 months with phlegm pot for check up. They always seem to be happy with me.
