I have just been diagnosed with bronchiectasis but I am totally confused as I do not have the cough anymore. I have had weeks of sleeping upright at night because the cough was so bad but now I am on prednisolone steroid tablets so is that why my cough has gone? This was all a total shock as I was told a month ago that I have extrinsic allergic alveolitis (still waiting to findout what caused that, could be rabbit's hay) so had a CT scan to confirm it only to discover the bronchiectasis. I was perfectly fine in October and by December have two lung problems. Can anyone tell me if their bronchiectasis came on this quick? From what I have read it takes years to get lungs this bad. Its all a blur at the mo as the doc rang me at home to tell me but do not have appt at hosp to discuss CT until Jan. Any thoughts welcome! Thanks!
