I'm new here and so glad I found this forum. I'm looking for a little insight into a world I've just entered.
Back in October of last year I started to cough at night an annoying tiggly cough which ended up in me gagging then it stopped. It gradually got worse over time so I finally 5 months later went to the doctor. He started me off with lanzaprazole, (for gurd). Then nasal spray for post nasal drip non of which worked. Then he gave me a blue inhaler pump which helped a bit, then a brown pump which has helped a bit more. However I'm still coughing most nights and when walking uphill I get so breathless it's horrible. I've bought a Fitbit and am doing around 20,000 steps a day which on the flat is fine but uphill kills me. I'm overweight being 5ft 6in and 15st 8lbs. So my final question is should I still be breathless on these inhalers. I've been told that I shouldn't really need the blue one now. Thanks so much karen
