Hi everyone, I have been lurking in the background for a while.
I am a non smoker, but worked in pubs years back and family smoke. I am in my40's.s
For the past four years I have horrendous chest infections in the winter. During the rest of the year, difficulty breathing to the extent that I avoid stairs, I was told that my fibro was the cause and got no help so my mobility became even more restricted. This year, I had such a bad turn that I ended up on a nebuliser at the doctors and was close to having an ambulance called.
This prompted a reverse sporamitory test, took three months to get the appointment. This showed asthma and copd, dr thinks it's Alpha 1. Been waiting for an appointment at yhe hospital, it came through for November. In the mean time I have had another bad chest infection, more steroids and antibiotics. Imam on the pink inhaler, a spiro one and ventolin. Doesnt feel like enough 🤐
When i get given oral steroids, I feel so much better.
Hoping I will get some confirmed answers and better meds soon.
