What have I got? 2 years of coughing up phlegm, back pain and chest pain and fatigue. Chest clinic doctor said mild asthma or mild bronchiectasis but inconclusive and then discharged me. I am well enough to cycle to work 7mile round trip so no complaints really I would just like to know what it is, why I have it and should I go back to GP and ask for another referral to chest clinic but a different one. I am not on any medicine but I can hear my breathing whistle and wheeze and the symptoms never go away. I never feel better and although I do reg exercise so should feel super fit I just feel super tired! I am 55, gave up smoking a long time ago and had whooping cough when I was 21 and have always loved a good garden bonfire. I'm thinking what goes around comes around. My chest is reacting to a life lived.
