This is my first ever post, and was just wondering if anyone else had symptoms like myself, regarding my recent infection.
I always have Symbicort 400/12 two puffs twice a day, and use the Smart approach, although being on this treatment, i never ever feel 100% but much better than in the past.
I started a course of anti-biotics ... Doxycycline prior to Christmas and a course of steroids 40mg for a week. I remained extremely breathless so returned to the doctors. I was given another course of Doxycycline and Steroids for a six week course cutting down each week. I again returned to the doctors as still the same although a little better and was prescribed Erythromycin for a week. I felt a little better but still Breathless and wheezy and saw my own GP. She said my infection had cleared, on asking re my sputum, but i had to ask her to listen to my chest as i wanted confirmation. My peak flow has risen, but not to what it was prior to my infection.
I still remain Breathless and have stated coughing again, and on doing so it is very sore, know there is sputum to come up and it tastes as if it could turn infected.
I want to ask, does anyone out there have the same problem? I feel it is more associated with my windpipe, I loose my voice when very sore and breathless, have had omeprazole and lansoprazole in the past, but they just gave me bad indigestion.
I am just fed up of the constant not feeling well.
Thanks for listening
