Hi as I said on my other post I have had asthma all my life . With the usual flare ups and chesty things happening I got on with it . Until three years ago as I said in other post .
Well I'm convinced that what is happening to me is not asthma related or a chest infection like the docs and nurses keep telling me .They keep chucking steroids and and antibiotics at me which I pick up and don't take as I know they won't work . I have told them this on all my appointments.
I have what sounds like a chesty smokers cough (never even tried smoking ,hate it so much )which is so bad in the morning . It's almost like I have to clear all the yuk from my tubes before I get on with the day .I do cough during the day but as I said it's the clearing of the tubes in morning that gets me . The mucus is always clear . I'm always trying to clear my throat and my nose is usually a bit blocked . I have had pollops in the past and have allergies which I have never been tested for . .
Coughing really hard every morning leaves me breathless and tired before the day starts . If I take my inhaler for breathlessness it doesn't help as this cough is not ashma related I'm sure . It's just convincing my doc . I take antihistamine now and again when I feel allergies are bugging me . They help a little .
It's getting me so down being like this as I'm a pretty positive person and was really fit and active until this happened . Steroids made me put weight on and I lost the will a bit . Also ended up with Pnumonia earlier this year but feeling better and ready to get fit and healthy again but need to get this cough sorted . Maybe asthma group not the right place for this post but any ideas welcome .😃🌺🌻
