Hi long story short until last may I was healthy no problems then I fell and hurt my ribs, I was off work for a month, I was very breathless struggled to sleep due to a mixture of pain and breathlessness.
By last July still breathless and developed a cough, I was started on salbutamol.
In august GP sent me to A+E due to constant coughing, breathlessness and raised heart rate I was treated for atypical pneumonia and started on clinel.
September was seen be a consultant and started on fostair breathlessness more or less went coughing not as much.
Seen by consultant in December another chest infection .
Since December I have seen an asthma nurse twice and have been given an appointment with a consultant for September.
At the moment I keep having episode of scratching feeling in my throat that lasts a few days as well a feeling that I can't empty my lungs when I breath out, Ido get some relief from salbutamol. I have been getting some mild breathlessness.
I have started taking ranitadine incase it's acid reflux causing the cough as well antihistamines in case it's hayfever. I don't have a blocked or runny nose so I'm not convinced it's nasal drip.
I've never had a wheeze and peak flow drops by 100 when I'm feeling my worst.
Im begining to wonder if this is in my head.
