As many of you will know from previous posting ive gone back to work short hours two days week but over last three weeks the coughing returned and steadily got worse. Not infection type but horrible wet cough morn noon and night . Been to gp twice and gave me codine cough med but that just made me cough more during day as not during night due to being knocked out!! Long story short wont give me anything as got to see consultant nxt week so he can decide treatment. My gp thinks i have asthma (which until seeing new consultant id been treated as asthmatic for 20 yrs) shes a fab gp but like me bit helpless. In past id just take week steroids and up all my inhalers for week and be ok but no inhalers except atrovent and ventilin . Plus he wants see me as i am. Thing is after nearly three weeks im exahausted and feel awful. My chest is so tight its burning and you can hear my wheeze singing across the room. Even my horse looks at me when coughing as if im mad. After being ill for six months now this im totally lost . My peak flows around 250-300 mid day dropping down to 250-200 night. I dont know how much more i can take x judith
