Hi all some advice please or others experience. I have had (or am having?) a long exacerbation following a viral chest infection. I have been having symptoms for nearly 10 weeks now and have had 3 lots of antibiotics 2 lots of steriods and my inhaler changed to Fostair 100/6 which does seem to be helping. I don't cough at night very much now but am still breathless and extremely tired. I have been to the Gp so many times that I need a season ticket and they always say the same thing, chest is clear and no wheeze carry on with the inhalers.
I try to explain that my chest still feels sore but not around the rib cage down the centre by my sternum and just either side and that I am still producing some phlegm although I don't think it is coming from my chest more from my throat but they are always quite dismissive.
I am fed up of going to be told the same thing but am worried the asthma isn't under proper control. How long does it take for the phlegm and soreness to go after an exacerbation? Am I just being an impatient paitent I have never been ill for this long so it is all new to me. I am just worried that the exacerbation isn't really under control and that it will all start again. Thanks
