So after a bad night last night waking up breathless and coughing, I decided to ring 111 this morning. They advised me to go to a and e after saying I had a tight chest and chesty phlegmy cough. I decided to go to my walk in centre just as the nearest hospital is about a 30 minute drive. Saw a woman who did my oxygen on my finger, took my tempterure and listened to my chest. She didn't think it was a chest infection, told me to increase my purple and blue inhalers (never have to take blue unless I'm ill) and to go back tomorrow if I feel worse and she will give me steriods? I thought steriods needed to be used after treating the infection? Anyway does anyone have any home remedies for a phlegmy cough? I'm off to buy ginger as I can't afford to call in sick on Monday as I've had so much time off recently
