  • Hope everything kicks in very soon and you start to feel better. It can take a few days or so for meds to work but hang on in there. Xxxxx

  • It is good that you have come and chatted to us, I am a bronchiectasis person with asthma. I have had numerous chest infections over the last 5 years, and am recovering from the latest, the second since Christmas. I am on a recovery pack of amoxiclav. I am now resigning myself to be on antibs permanently. I am of very advanced years and every day is a bonus so wont complain.

    I have been very upset about my health in the past, but now just get on with it. I can understand how you feel completely. I think to sleep is the answer, and plenty of fluids. And, of course, talk to us xxx

  • thank you so much ,xx

  • Hope you feel better soon xxx
