For the last few days I have had a thinly running nose, followed by a slightly infected nostril. Yesterday my nose was so blocked I couldn't breathe, neither could I blow it. It was as if the nostril lining was swollen. I then developed a tight sensation in the whole length of my oesophageal area,almost as if I had swallowed something hard and pebble like and it was stuck. I woke up with a shock in the middle of the night because I think I had simply stopped breathing. These symptoms are accompanied by feeling tired and unwell.
Is this familiar to anyone? I sort of think I've picked up a virus and it's behaving oddly because of PMR and my alleged Fibro. I'm reducing Pred. Slowly and my next dose will be 10mg alternating with 12.5mg. Slower than the Rheumie's hastily scrawled programme. I have raised blood pressure and take 25 mgs of Atenolol daily.
I also have a tendency to worry about symptoms. I can't think my GP's surgery would be much interested in this, more in hurrying me off the Pred.
Any thoughts wise ones?
