41 year old, unwell with six years. Recently diagnosed with bronchiectasis, but have symptoms that my consultant doesn't think is just bronchiectasis. On steride 500mg twice a day, Spiriva two puffs a day, singular, and recently put on antibiotics for 3 months for a bacteria found after bronchosopy in June. Felt a bit better, but still very breathless and exhausted. Have to be careful what I do on a daily basis. Used to have terrible pain in my ribs, chest and back, but the Spiriva and antibiotics helped that a bit. I find exercise or any physical activity is my demon, it totally flattens me and leaves me breathless. Just looking for advice in this condition and if anyone found anything different that helps them. Have a visit with my consultant Monday, be interesting to see what he comes up with. Waiting for challenge test to see if I have asthma as they are still unsure. Currently out of work, and bored!! I'm totally new to this page, and am writing from Ireland.
