I have well controlled asthma until it flares up usually after a cold which turns into a chest infection and it takes a couple of months to settle down. The last 2 years ive had bad bronchitis which did get better..eventually, but ive had really bad heartburn and reflux after this too. I did take Lanzaprozole anyway and I known steroids can cause this but every time I eat and drink i now do a really deep couple of coughs and produce thick phlegm balls I think from my airways and I get wheezy. Im trying to work out what's causing this? The colder the food the worse the cough etc.
Is it that my reflux has developed more?
Is it the extra weight ive put on?
Is it the seretide I take 4 x 250 a day?
