been upto Brompton hosp under asthma clinic because of breatheless since july. However the first letter stated l do not have asthma, so my maidstone consultant was surprised to find out l was put in that section. Saying that as l told him at maidstone l went where l was put being they are the top lung and heart hosp.Their findings state they can find no reason for it, and basically classified it as imaginary illness. You can imagine how angry l was.
I have had lung problems for some four years now. My Maidstone consultant thought it was bronchililtis and treated me so until july, when l was taken off steroids and sent to Brompton as they were unsure what l really had.
on seeing Maidstone consultant end of dec, he has now referred me to Proffessor Wells at Brompton who deals with diffused lung disease which l understand means other fact like RA, gout, can trigger infection in your lungs.
Has any one else heard of this or been to Brompton for tests with this professor. Understand theses tests are done in a day, unlike the endless of trips we made into sept. I live in kent, and my hubby and l would drive there and often took us two and a half hours.
Waiting on my Brompton letter to come, but interested in others views.
