hi thanks for the replies to my sputum question. I'm supposed to be going on a cruise around the canaries on Monday and started being ill last week. As no improvement- I had blood tests, urine tests, sputum test and x ray yesterday. ( I'm on amoxicillin and steroids)
My coughing is really bad again- as it was last October. I'm worried we wont be allowed on the ship and will feel bad about that. It's my husbands 65 th in a couple of weeks.
I was changed Fostair last year after the coughing bout I had then and have felt better but I've just read- don't take Fostair if the coughing is acute, take your reliever! Don't take it at all?
I feel like nothing is helping . Last time my cough was with me for at least a month and I was nearly suicidal as I felt weak after each episode, there was no end, the attacks were violent and of course I was very weak in the bladder.
Same symptoms again! My voice has gone too.
I always feel better in warmer climates and am sure the trip will benefit my health.
Sorry - just feeling sorry for myself. People who don't suffer this don't understand how it affects you.
I've been drinking peppermint and liquorice tea with honey - going through a jar a day!
Help to alleviate this?
