Background about me.
I'm 25. I have Bronchiectasis that I believe was caused by a chest infection I had about a year ago. I work in London, which of course means commuting using the Bakerloo line to work, and Jubilee on the way back. I do this because the Bakerloo is much more dusty.
Whenever I come off the underground about an hour or two later I start coughing and can feel a wheeze in my chest, my voice will begin to crack and I need to clear my throat a lot.
Effectively it feels like I'm coughing up a post nasal drip, which I typically do get whilst on the underground.
I asked this question to my GP and chest specialist whom had no answer, so hoping to find out from you guys what you think.
I'm confident the throat clearing and cough is from the underground. But is it because the dust is causing my post nasal drip and THATS why I'm coughing, or is it because the dust is settling and causing damage to my lungs and I'm actually coughing and clearing up mucus? I cant tell.
What do you think?
