I have chosen to come to this forum in the chance someone out there has similar symptoms to myself as I have become so confused about the kind of symptoms i get. I am 48yrs old and just over a year ago I developed Pneumonia after a double bout of the Flu. Once I started to recover from the Pneumonia I had a very productive cough in the morning and this would usually clear the mucus by lunchtime, then the cough would become non productive in the evening. This cycle went on for a while (2 months) and after several trips to the doctors and seeing specialist's nobody could properly diagnose my condition as my peak flow readings always looked OK. It wasn't until I had a trip to Florida where there was bad thunderstorms that my peak flow meter readings plummeted and ended up on a course of Prednisone which almost straight away started to improve my peak flow readings. Once the course of Prednisone finished my peak flows dropped again. On my return to the UK, I went back to the specialist and he confirmed that I had asthma. I was then put on Sirdupla (salmeterol 25mg/fluticasone 125mg), of which I take 2 puffs in the morning and two in the evening. This got rid of my cough. never needed my rescue inhaler and have ever since always had good peak flow readings. My questions revolves around the other effects I have had over the past 12 months. Basically I find myself clearing my throat a lot especially in the colder months, my voice during these periods becomes very hoarse and I find some mornings I bring up mucus which is yellow and then eventually clears. Sometimes I have clear mucus (basically saliva) which feels like its stuck at the back of my throat and can feel like it for long periods of the day. I don't always have these symptoms and use good inhaler technique. I have even started using a spacer, always gargle and brush my teeth afterwards. Does anybody else have similar symptoms?
