I am currently caring for my boyfriend whose condition has deteroriated dramatically in the last fortnight. A long time asthmatic. He's currently on anti-biotics and stereoids for bi-lateral bronchiectasis, plus a current throat and chest infection. He's been told to stop taking the anti-fungal tablets he was prescribed 2 months ago to help his allergy to Aspergillus. He has lost his voice completely, so I am doing his business calls too (he's self employed).
His coughing disturbs our sleep every 20 mins and he can't get into a comfortable position. He says it hurts less when lying face down, but he normally goes to sleep on his side or back and can't then drop off to sleep when face down.
It's pretty bad and we are more desperate every day as it has been like this for a week. I've seen a change in his moods, and mental health as well as the physical impacts, such as lose of appetite, breathlessness, zero energy, doesn't want to see any-one....
Has any-one got suggestions of what would help him (and me) sleep please? I can't find a way to help him at the moment and it is breaking my heart to see him suffer so much.
