I have had a lung infection . Had 3 lots anti biotics, also 3 lots of steroids. Am clear of infection but still wheezy and need an inhaler. I seem to have developed an allergy to pollen too.
The breathlessness frightens me. I have never had anything like this before. I had a chest X-ray, clear.
I have a spirometer test in a week, but unsure if this is too soon. I have been ill for 6 weeks now. I am recovering but it seems very slow. Deep crackling in lungs finally gone.
Just had 15 days of steroids.
Went in the sea yesterday and realised I still cannot seem to breathe deeply.
I expect I have copd, but will it get better?
I've always been an active walker and swimmer
