Not sure this will sound familiar to anyone as I quite possibly don't have asthma at all (have been posting ad nauseam about the whole thing so don't want to go into that too much).
However I do have what feels like a lot of overlap with symptoms so will ask anyway. (btw this is not asking for urgent help).
Have been coughing loads today (been coughing for months and months but it varies). I don't have a chest infection and not coughing anything up, but chest feels...inflamed, mainly down the centre. It reminds me of when I definitely had asthma when I was younger and got too much cold air which was a trigger eg when I'd do something stupid like running for a train in winter. Also breathless though usually am atm anyway. And I think a bit tight.
Does this sound at all familiar to anyone? Am hoping I can tone down the coughing and this feeling before I have a bronchoscopy as it doesn't seem likely to be very helpful.
If I really feel like I need help I'll get it but I'm usually breathless but more or less functional and don't have attacks - went to OOH a couple of weeks ago when it felt a bit worse and they said to wait to see consultant as nothing urgent and nothing they could do.
Sorry, ANOTHER long post!
