Since the 2nd week of September I have had a cold.My colds do usually last quite along time but now after 6 weeks I am tired and fed up.
A couple of weeks ago I saw my gp as I felt dreadful. I had difficulty in catching my full breath which was uncomfortable and also a wheeze.I was given a salbutamol inhaler and amoxycillin.
I returned to the gp last week as I still had the wheeze predominantly on breathing out.
I was given a 5 day course of steroids and 500mg clarythromycin.
I have now finished the steroids and almost the antibiotics.The really noisy wheeze has subsided but I can still feel it when I breathe.
Today I went for a bike ride and forgot my inhaler and I really struggled and felt more breathless than I had before and since then I keep yawning as it seems the only way to get my full breath but even that doesn't always work.
I have to make an appointment for spirometry when this clears up, but if I'm honest I feel no better and am actually scared why.I don't know if it is likely to be asthma or maybe just a cold or maybe something more sinister.
I will make another appointment tomorrow with my gp but I was wondering what I am likely to expect.
