I suffer from Bronchiectasis and asthma. This last few weeks I have had much more mucus than usual. I work hard with nebuliser using saline and can get rid of it, but I just keep producing more. No sign of any infection. Sometimes I feel as if I am drowning. There is no sign of it easing, would anyone know what causes this?
hello ennabel, lots of mucus as you are producing it is indeed a sign of of a bronchiectasis exacerbation. I’m not quite sure why, in the face of this, you think that there is no infection. There will be some bacteria there which is producing all of that. If you have an emergency pack of antibiotics, now is the time to take them and inform your GP. If you don’t have antibiotics at home ring your consultant’s secretary or get your GP to give you some quickly. Remember that bronch needs two weeks.
Thanks you so much for quick reply. I was reluctant to use rescue park as I do not feel I have infection. However I think I will start right way.
