    Hi Jojo

    Happy new year to you.

    It's funny you should say that about the reflux, because for a month or maybe more (time flies) I've had indigestion which I've not experienced before. At least, that's what I think it is. I keep feeling very uncomfortable right in the middle of my chest, and I can feel it right through to my back.  I've put it down to coughing a lot more and I have booked to see my doctor next week about this.

      Thanks for getting back to me so quick I know I should go see doctor, but all they do is dish out more pills as none of them seem to know much about bronchiectasis I'm on so Manny pills now for one thing or another and I guess I'm scared they might find something else worng with me. But I know I will have to go if it don't clear up. And I hope you get sorted too. Mine comes on worse when I start to do the drain so iv not done it for 2 days but I need to have a go tonight.x

    hi jojo, it was acid reflux that caused my Bronchiectasis in the 1st place, I used to waken at night choking on the acid and on a couple of occasions I inhaled the stuff into my lungs sad but I solved the night time reflux with Omniprazole, and by simply raising the head of my bed by approx 6" thus preventing the acid travelling to my mouth whilst asleep, good luck, hope you get relief soon. biggrin

    The A and E said that I had traces of pneumonia in the bottom of both lungs but the rash was a allergy . I just thought that is was something to do with it as I never in my life have had a rash .

    Since I been nebulising meropenem I now suffer with bad heartburn which I've never had before. Guess it's one of the side effects of that particular drug.
