Hi I previously posted about yet another head cold and now what's again feel as if it's on my chest, this is the 5th since December. Seems to start with a head cold and then I get a sore throat, coughing mucus (itchy/ tickling sensation in side right shoulder every time) I don't get fevers or feel terribly ill just not right. I'm getting so fed up and down about this without any explanation.
Bit of history- it all seemed to start almost a year ago, (not looking Ng after quitting smoking) I felt slight short of breath more like it was taking more of an effort. Long story short Iv had numerous pfts, one chest x-ray which was normal and 3 ct scans which all showed "subtle centrilobular nodules" most radiology reports said could suggest mild inflammatory smoking damage, I then had a bronchial challenge which is used to diagnose asthma which I slightly responded to but not typical of asthma and resp con said shows mild bronchial irrational. And then discharged me in feb, I have tried to carry on and put all this at the back of my mind and get on with my life but I can't ignore the way I feel I really feel this is affecting me, I would love to be able to get on as all the tests investigations had me so anxious but I really don't real right, I have a 3 year old child and we would love to have another soon but I'm petrified I will get worse and won't be able to manage and I'm the back of my mind I feel this could be something much more. I have been tracking my peak flow which has always been 500 and always 550, 15 mins after symbicort (does this indicate something) I took this morning and it's down to 430-450 it's never been this low before. I'm so sorry for the long ramble and I just don't know what to do, get second opinion and open the door to more months of awfulness and maybe just the same outcome or leave it and hope it doesn't come to anything, the repeat chest colds and needing symbicort every morning and evening (really find it helps so much) makes me think this mustn't be normal 😞 thank you for listening to my rant 🙂
