Hi all. First of plz ignore any mistakes I may(will) make while posting as I am not used to forums. I would like to thank all who contribute here as has been stated many times b4 doctors and nurses don't tell us much! Will try to keep my story short for now and add as I go along. I was diagnosed with mild emphysema end of November 2015 and have since stopped smoking had a 5 day course of steroids, course of antibiotics, been on holiday and welcomed in the new year and, been given another inhaler on top of my small blue one ..so its been an eventful couple of months!!! . My concern at this moment is my new inhaler Incruse ellipta and the possible side effects. Yesterday was my first puff (once a day only) and today was my second. Possible side effects are common cold like symptoms and sore throat plus headache 3 of which I am feeling effects of now (trust me) does anyone know if this is something that will pass as it is new to me or, more likely continue? Will be going back to nurse in one months time when inhaler runs out to give my verdict of it. Don't much fancy having the cold the rest of my life!! haha. Anyway thanks again. 49 year old male.
