Just wondering if anyone else is like myself. Nearly every month for over a year now I have to take AB and steroids. I'm so breathless at the moment and coughing a lot, so I have started again my AB and steroids.
I seem to be fine for about 2 weeks after AB and steroids stop then it all seems back to normal again breathing bad and being chesty. I know I have severe COPD but is this just my condition getting worse.
Saw my COPD consultant last moth who put me on a course of co-amoxiclav for 2 weeks and steroids gradually reducing steroids day by day. Also changed my Seretide to Fostair I felt great at the time, now 2 weeks down the line its all back again. My own GP doesn't really help me he just says well you are seeing your COPD consultant but that is now not till November. I have a constant headache which when is really bad blurs my vision on long distances. So I have made my self a appointment at opticians because I know If I go up the doctors that will be the first thing he says to me. So I will get that done and then go and see him about my headaches. I am truly fed up with all this and nothing ever seems to get rid of this awful chest infections. I have been on Azithromycin every other day and taken one every day but that doesn't stop it either. I know it doesn't stop you getting chest infections but is supposed to stop exacerbation's which it doesn't for me. Please help if possible. Thanks for listening.
