I was diagnosed 17 years ago with WG. I have 6 monthly infusions of Rituiximab at Addenbrookes.
I developed a chest infection 2 weeks prior to the infusion and now 10 weeks on and 6 visits to the Gp, 2 courses of antibiotics, inhalers and a chest X ray which shows no abnormality I still have a hacking non productive cough, shortness of breath on exertion and breathing that sounds like 'Darth Vadour ' as I'm going off to sleep.
I wake feeling uncomfortable, as if someone is sitting on my chest and use a vaporiser in my bedroom all night.
I do not know what to do next. Gp is insistent that it's a virus and it will take me time to recover !!! But 10 weeks on, yes I'm better than I was but its just taking so long to go completely.
Has anybody any advice please and has anyone else experienced this or similar ?
I know my body and somethings just doesn't feel right.
