Just been (finally) diagnosed with Bronciectasis. After nearly two years of being told it was just exarcebation of asthma, simple dyspnoea, and even possible COPD. A year of CT scans, heart scans, spiromitory tests, lung function tests. Even work related occupational health medicals because I was off work for over a year before I resigned.
I was living away from home at the time, which is why I resigned from work so I could move back home for family support. First time I discuss my issues in detail with my new doctor, he tells me I have Bronchiectasis. May be the results of the last lung function tests my old consultant had me do a couple weeks before I moved.
Having looked into this more, and having read comments from someone on the NHS Bronchiectasis info page, it all fits and everything now falls into place.
At least now I have some kind of diagnosis, and something to work with. Anyone else have Bronchiectasis? Any advice most welcome!
