I'm sorry, I seem to be posting lots just lately!
So, for more than 4 weeks I've had this chest infection, numerous antibiotics and 2 lots of steroids haven't helped and now I've caught a head cold to go with it. Peak flow is around 65% and using ventolin every day.
During the day my cough tends to be very chesty but last night it became very dry and I coughed and coughed and coughed. Every breath in made my chest itch inside which made me need to cough again. My chest was tight and i was out of breath. I wondered if it was my asthma so had 2 puffs of ventolin but this didn't help, so 10 minutes later had 2 more, still no help so wondered if it was actually my asthma, or just the chest infection. Over about an hour I had 10 puffs of ventolin and after half an hour the cough seemed to subside.
This morning my chest is very sore and my cough is back to being chesty.
I'm still taking last lot of antibiotics and awaiting chest xray results so can't go back to the gp until after then.
Anyone ever had this chest itchiness and constant coughing before?
