Hi all I'm new to this site but have found you after hours of looking up my symptoms.
I had 4 chest infections last year one being pluerisy the infections were spread out throughout the year so didn't really think much of it.
I also work with preschool age children so I'm always around coughs, sneezes e.c.t.
So far this year I'm on my third infection all x rays have come back clear with my bloods showing higher white blood cells so have to get these repeated.
The last infection and this infection are practically exactly the same starts with a vicious dry persistent cough that is so strong that I pill my chest and back muscles.
Drs don't know what is causing the infection and so far have been treated with asthma pumps (pink and blue), oral steroids x2, 3 lots of different antibiotics.
I have given sputum tests after asking and have used private health care to see a respiratory specialist at the end of the month.
Sorry for the long post but I feel at my wits end 😢
