I am basically posting to ask for some reassurance! I have been feeling very chesty since mid October, was told I had a chest infection in November, which was the worst I've ever felt - I was wheezy and coughing all the time. I was on pred and antibiotics plus Fostair and my reliever - am off the pred and antibiotics now but still feeling very tight chested and the cough has not gone at all. It gets really bad at night so I'm exhausted all during the day, and my peak flow is down from 500 to 440 - not a massive drop I know, but usually it isn't affected at all, even when I'm feeling chesty. I went to the doctors again yesterday and he is referring me to a specialist because he basically said there is nothing more he could do for me. I have never seen a specialist before and really don't know what to expect. I also know that appointment won't be for a few weeks so I am not going to get any better any time soon, which is very frustrating as I'm struggling to get my college work done (I'm at music college playing oboe, a wind instrument - really helpful!)
I just was wondering what the next stage would likely be - I know there are other medicines out there that could work but I just don't really know what to expect from the specialist - do any of you have experience of this? I am also frustrated that it is taking so long to get better - my asthma issues have never lasted this long before!
Thanks for reading, any advice is very welcome!
