lung/ breathing problems since December the doctors have thrown everything they have it
x ray negative
2 x sputum negative
antibiotics haven't worked steroids have not helped either, I have been given duoresp inhaler no joy,
The GP has asked me to do another X ray which I have and second blood test to rule out DVT Taking a deep breath hurts like hell and my lung makes a popping and crackling noise.
Unfortunately I have been smoking on and off since 11, I have up 2 years ago, A couple of doctors at the practice have said COPD maybe, I'm now been referred to a specialist.
there has been musty smell in my bedroom. the landlord has investigated and said its condensation and that they will be putting a fan in the bathroom. I did inform the GP about the damp but he doesn't think its the cause.
I have Barretts were the acid in my stomach burns my throat I asked the GP if the tablets could be causing me to cough they changed my medication and I'm no better. I just don't know where to go or what to do. I have not been able to take a proper deep breath in for weeks. The strength of the cough is causing incontinence too.
Recently I saw a different Doctor who changed my meds too:
80mg Omeprazole and twice daily ranitidine. I'm only on day 4 of the new medication regime and can honesty say my condition has worsened. My IBS is back with vengeance and I feel very sick, also it feels like there is something caught in my chest. My cough has returned. I saw the lung specialist who said that the cough was more than likely due to the aspirating the acid.he also said the he would have increased my medication also for 3 months to see if they work. As i mentioned before this first week has been horrendous. I cant seem to manage the "clicking noise" in my throat . what now? can anyone advise on were to go from here? I'm so fed up.
