Hi im a newby n i have emphysemia chronic bronchitis and bronceletis and specialist 3 weeks ago told me i also have asthma. Empy n broches i have had for 8years, i cough up sputum approx 10 times an hour it is never ending, I have to take boxes tissues wherever i go, it is embarassing and depressing. I have been on anti biotics for past 6months also steriods. I have always been reluctant to use inhalers and only use them when my breathing is so bad.
Specialist gave me spiriva and sebutaline inhalers and another 3weeks steriods. Last nite for the 1st time i used the inhaler, i coughed up sputum for several hours using a box of tissues, eventually fell asleep, woke up feeling a lump in my throat and strangely everything i looked at was green for a few minutes. I am feeling weak, shakey have a temp and cant get out of bed. Could it be the inhaler, and do they actually help, i have bruising from the steriods and itching. Does anyone cough up as much as me and does it get better, feeling so low doesnt
help that i am trying to stop smoking. Sorry to go on and on. cas x
