I posted about an ongoing cough I've had a while ago (background here: healthunlocked.com/blf/post...
My cough started more or less mid-December(ish), around 20th Dec, and while it has improved, it still hasn’t disappeared. I get a very tickly throat with a dry (although occasionally slightly productive) cough that can be wheezy, especially at night and when I wake up in the morning. I can go the whole day without coughing or wheezing.
I’ve had an x ray, which came back normal and yesterday I did a spirometry, which was also normal (the numbers were 90, 93 and 79 for the one where normal is above 70). I had a CT scan done on my lungs three years ago, which was also normal.
I’m not sure what to do now, does anyone have any ideas? The nurse that did the spirometry wasn't sure what to suggest. My GP said coughs can take 8 weeks to clear and I could have post-nasal drip.
But is it possible to have a normal spirometry but still have COPD? Should I go back to my GP and push for another CT scan? Or is it possible that anxiety has prolonged my recovery from simple bronchitis?
Any help appreciated!
