Appointment with GP this morning as my breathing is worse than when I was diagnosed in July. Switched me from Symbicort 200/6 to Seretide 250. She said I should not be displaying these symptoms at this early stage - FEV1 73%. Had 2 chest x rays which are clear. Blood tests clear. No sign of chest infection. Still awaiting appointment with Consultant which she is going to chase up. I guess I will have CT scan. I go to PR class now.
My breathing is like - when I walk from one side of room to other, I am gasping.
I have been off work since July and handing in sick certs. First time in all my 40+ years of working I have ever put in sick certs. Wonder how long GP will give me them for and should I just call it a day and quit the job that I have been in for many many years? How would that leave me benefit wise?
I thought I was doing good taking my assortment of different Vitamins i.e. Multi vitamin, NAC, Vit D3 5000iu but she said not to take the Vit D3 as can cause more harm than good. I seem to be taking 3 steps forward and 6 back.
