Hi everyone been a long time since i posted. I finally saw the consultant last monday as some of you may remember that i have been having a problem with a tickly cough since march time, but nobody could understand why had tests that always come back normal and did not get rid of my cough. I had a x ray that was clear.
Monday i saw him and he did a spirometry test with normal FEV1,FVC, peak expiratory flow rate and FEF 25-75 god knows what that all means lol but he said pretty good resuts!!! before i left he told me to have another x ray to be sure as its been 3 months since i last have one i just got those results and they read normal sized heart and lungs were clear... I guess this still leaves me wondering what the hell this cough is and why i still have it.
The consultant said that it probably the result of the years of smoking and i may always have it OMG really i cant live with it surely?.
He said he thinks i have an element of Irritable airways ( first i heard of this) ? Hes sending me for a spirromertey plus reversibility test and i got to go back in 4 months so really not really a result but he does not think i have anything serious. I am still on my antidepressants which really does help so until 4 months its just getting back to the normal.
Thanks all for listening to me and all your advice in the past. Mel xx
