Hello. My name is Samantha. I am 24 years old. I was born premature, 3 months early, weighing 1 pound 11 ounces. Two days after I was born, I developed a pneumothorax, then after that, a month later, intisticial emphysema, then at the age of 14, pleurisy. Since the emphysema, a month after I was born, I have developed recurrent chest infections, and pleurisy. The doctors never listened to me, when I tried asking them for tests for asthma a few years ago. When I went in, with a severe chest infection, and had sats of 93 percent, and was put on a nebuliser, I said to the doctors, I needed an inhaler, but they refused. After that, I tried to get tested again. I had a spiromitory but it was only 20 minutes, so done incorrectly. The results weren't even wrote down properly either. Now, finally, I'm on asthma inhalers, beclametazone and salamol, and am being tested for bronchiectasis. I've had a ct scan, chest X-ray, and have to now have lung function tests. The X-ray showed my lungs to be darker at the top, than the bottom.
