not a good week

Had my yearly asthma review earlier in the week and my peak flow reading was really low but I have been coughing up green gunk since the previous friday. The nurse recomended I see the doctor and I said I had an appointment for the friday of that week ( yesterday ).

Saw the doctor on friday and explained to him about it and he has put me on antibiotics and steroids again this is the third lot this year so he has told me he wants me to have a chest x ray. I am dreading what it is going to show.

Hi f1jenny

Sorry to hear you haven't had a good week. Chest X-rays are commonly used to check that there isn’t anything else causing your asthma symptoms. Please do give our nurses helpline a call to talk through how you're feeling, they can talk you through what to expect from the X-ray, you can reach them on 0300 222 5800 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm).

Take care, Dita
