Thought id post my story so far with my asthma/chest problems!..maybe someone can shed some more light on my experience.
About 4 months ago i noticed that every morning i had plhegm on my chest. Every morning id be coughing up some..not huge amounts but it was every morning.
Then in December i had a asthma attack..but it wasnt like a classic attack id had before. The one night my chest got tight and i had to keep taking my ventolin. Then towards the end of the night i noticed that i started to cough up lots of phlegm..then with a couple of hours my chest was clear??!..next day was ok..then the day after that i started to wheeze again.
I went to docs xmas eve and he told me my chest didnt sound that bad but i could have amoxxlylin (i know thats not correct spelling!) if i wanted to. I took this and my chest infection did clear...however the phlegm thing in morning was still there.
Its difficult to describe its not classic asthma wheezing, but feels like there is phlegm down back of my throat lower down, also ive noticed that my nose can become stuffed a lot. When i do cough anything up its just small amounts of white phlegm.
Anyway i went to docs again yesterday. She precribed Prednisolone, a nose spray and Cetrizine Hydrochloride. Ive also had to hand in a sample and she has told me if doesnt get any better ill have to have a chest x ray to rule anything else out.
Not only is this really getting me down but im worried to. Strange thing is thinking back ive had this exactly same time of year for last 2 years...not as bad as this though. Like many people on here ive lived with asthma all my life, but this seems to be different...i dont even know if this is asthma at all....?!
