I'm new here....I have recently been diagnosed with Bronchiectasis after a rather unpleasant year health wise.
It started at the beginning of the year with recurrent fevers but no other symptoms. I have a great GP, who ran hundreds of different blood tests, abdomen scan, X-rays etc. In June (actually on my birthday!) I had a funny turn when getting up in the morning, nearly collapsed, flashing lights, blurred vision and spinning sensations, to cut a long story short, not a TIA but caused by fluctuating blood pressure. At the beginning of July, I went down with what the doctor thought was bronchitis, ten weeks later and I was no better....I was then referred to a respiratory consultant. I was given a 4 week course of antibiotics after the CT scan and sputum test showed the bug that was assaulting my lungs. I am still waiting for the results of various blood tests but one test has shown that fungal spores are not my friend, so I will have to have various inhalers forever more. I am back on antibiotics again which I find very annoying as I only have had a week off them! I am doing my breathing exercises twice a day at the moment.
I feel a little in limbo here, I am not sure what the 'do's' and 'dont's' are. Nobody is able to tell me why I am getting the strangest, weirdest feeling in my chest and legs, does anybody else get them? I also can suddenly feel really hot, sometimes it's because I have a fever, sometimes not and I feel constantly exhausted...is this going to go on forever?!
As you can see I am feeling a little sorry for myself, any advice would be great fully received xx
