After 7 months now dry coughing during the night and a little now during the day, chest tightness (for the last 3 weeks) and a serious of throat wheezing and choking sensations in my throat, feeling like my lungs do not have enough air in them so inhaling deeper every 5 minutes and accompanied by an icy inhaling air feeling in my throat when I inhale deeply or normally, I have been trialed with asthma inhalers, steroid nasal sprays, strong anti histamines, normal chest x-ray Feb 2016 & Mar 2017, spirometery with reversibility test normal and a peak flow meter reading of 400 the GP has decided to refer me to a lung specialist as in his own words 'I am baffled'.
I am terrified of what they might find at this clinic as they deal with lung cancer and all sorts of stuff - my main worry is that this is lung cancer and it will only be picked up with a ct scan of my chest! Serious of bloods I have noticed my WBC has been increasing all the time - last time it was 8.9 where as last year this time it was 6.1! So that is alarm bells to me that this could be cancer
Has anyone been to this type of clinic before or the symptoms I am describing and what have they done if so or what was your outcome?
Thanks ( I am literally quivering just thinking about it) - I am 36 f ex smoker (stopped 6 months ago) - I am really scared and just want to cry all the time, planning my will yesterday expecting the worst news in a few weeks!
