I would appreciate hearing from anyone who understand this... some experience of it themselves or someone they know, or medical training but please do not get back to me to simply suggest going to the doctor or whatever!
I am a 62 year old woman who was quite healthy for a long time, then struggled a bit with a lack of energy on exertion, then some breathing problems which I was told were asthma, then regular infections in lungs and now very sticky mucus in throat, some wheezing, rasping, which I find can be helped if I use mucus thinners. I think it is now affecting my pancreas as it is not able to deal with cheese/fats. As far as I know none of my family ever had cystic fibrosis but is it possible I have it? I live in the UK where the odds are that even if I tell my doctor I think I may have it I will be told it is only asthma and only bronchietis, athough way those illnesses are managed with antibotics/inhalers etc seem to be identical anyway. Thank you for reading this.
