I went to see my doc on thursday with a chesty cough and breathing problems, my doc said my chest was clear (surprise, surprise!) and gave me some antibiotics to take if chest wasn't any better in a few days, I then mentioned that I was having really bad coughing fits where I couldn't catch my breath and was coughing all night and she gave me some pred but said I didn't need it at the moment due to my chest being clear. She also said that if I felt I needed to take pred they would need to see me incase I needed a nebuliser. So now I am unsure when to take anything! does anyone else go to the doc feeling really poorly only for them to say ""well your chest is clear so you're not that bad!"" it's so frustrating!
