I am hoping for some advice. I have had reoccurring chest infections since last year. Since May of this year I have had 5 courses of antibiotics and 4 courses of steroids. 6 weeks ago I had an abnormal chest xray - pneumonia showing on right bottom side of lung. I am due a follow up chest xray on Monday 😦.
The problem i am having is doesnt matter how they change my inhalers or what "other" treatments they are throwing at me I cant shift the breathlessness - its driving me bonkers and knackered more than usual. Sick of hearing that I have basal crepitations one minute and oh it sounds clear the next. IF ITS SO CLEAR WHY CANT I BREATHE. They said it was clear 2 days before the abnormal xray ahem my faith in drs 😕😕😕
My dr said today that my chest sounds very quiet but tight and shallow - and that she could tell I am struggling to take a breath. I am not a fan of hospitals - scared witless and I try to avoid as much as possible 😣😣. I also have to have numerous breathing tests to check if its lupie related - according to Con. Dr thinks its asthma related or hayfever (never had hayfever in my life😬)
I am just really fed up. I would love to just be able to breathe. Hate feeling like all the air is being squeezed / crushed out of me 😢. Cant even breathe when im just sat down doing nothing, its getting beyond a joke 😢.
Has anyone else had any of this experience? I am beginning to get concerned and dont know what to think.
Any help advice would be appreciated.
Lupie hugs to u all hope u are all in good spirits
