Hi all, i am new to the site, and interested on exchanging comments on frequently recurring chest infections. Been off work now 4 weeks, another week to go before check up with GP. So far 3 lots steroid pills, on 3rd lot antibiotics and still coughing, raspy chest. Waiting on respiratory consultant appointment but now worried. Never been zo bad before. Ruled out pneumonia, and fed up reading different websites on chest probs. COPD suspected as is TB. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I am age 64 and have had asthma from aeound age 32 yrs. Thanx.
