Managed to see GP this morning as been breathless for past 4 weeks. She had given me 7 day course of Prednisolone which I finished last weekend and it did no good at all. At that time she didn't think there was infection so no antibiotics. Today she sounded my chest and said she heard crackle and prescribed me another week of Prednisolone and Doxycycline. Also Furosemide as feet/ankles swollen. I wonder if that wee infection has been lurking quietly in there and that's reason for breathlessness last 4 weeks. Either way now I have these meds and hopefully that will sort it out.
GP confirmed that she has made referral to PR for me.
I asked her if they had a Nurse who dealt mainly with lung issues at the practice as I feel I could get more information from Nurse and not take up doctors time. Never get to see same Doctor at our practice and different one each time. They do - so made appointment for next week.
Made appointment with surly receptionist and she said can you tell me what it was for. Several people standing next to me and right next to waiting room. Told her no didn't want to tell her what is was for (or the other dozen people within earshot).
Hope everyone keeping well and thank you for being there. You are my Guru's. Would be lost without you.
