The good news is that I finally got to see the cough professor today and I did not appear to be a mystery to him. He recognised my symptoms. He's seen them before and they fit into a recognised pattern, He believes he knows what is wrong with me and he thinks he can do something about it. And best of all when I told him I had a Berlin marathon entry in September and the cough was drastically interfering with my training he got all supportive and said 'Well we'll have to make sure you get there won't we? Your spirometry test certainly show you have the lungs of a marathon runner' I feel quite tearful. It's been a pretty dismal few months but hope is the most fantastic gift someone can give you
