Apologies for the long post but I would be so grateful for any advice or shared experience.
I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis ten years ago and then given Azithromycin for three days a week. I took this for a year and it helped enormously but I developed Ulcerative Colitis and had to stop taking it. Since then my Bronchiectasis has been fairly well controlled until this year. I’ve had seven chest infections which have finally cleared up and I have not had to have antibiotics for two months. Unfortunately I have developed a very bad wheezing at night time which is causing terrible sleep issues. It’s still there during the day but intermittent and I can ignore it. I am currently having to sleep (or attempt to) propped up on four pillows, but this still does not help. The wheezing is in the same place; it feels like something is sticking or obstructing my breath. I have had several visits to the GP who has referred me back to the hospital but I am still awaiting an appointment.
To be honest, I feel quite worried now; and exhausted with such poor sleep.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
