So I went to an urgent care center on saturday and was given nebs, pred and clarithromycin so it turns out I was right and I do have a chest infection. The doc I saw was lovely and was happy for me to taper pred and even gave me another tapeing course as I also have bad laryngitis.

I would like to thank everyone who gave very helpful replys, and also add that I do not do sputum samples it is mostly due to personal choice so please if I post on here again please dont mention this also my consultant prescribed my pred tapering dose so please no pred bashing either I am fully aware of the effects it can have.

Much appreciated
