For the last 10 years o so i had a cough that came in spring or call last one week or 2 and left. I thought it Was allergy. Last april i got the tickle on my chest and the cough came back and 9 months later i still have it. I get white sick mucus in the morning and after that its a clear mucus when i cough.
i went to my dr and he refer me to a lung specialidt which took 3 months to get in. He listen to my lungs and he said he heard crskling on my left lung and that he Was sending me for tests. I had ct scan, blood test and pulmonary function test. On Augustnmy husband and i went for the results and as soon as we got to the doro he said i have good News for you, you dont have what your mother died from which Was pulmonary fibrosis. (My mom Was diagnose with pf at age 83 and died at 86, the lung specialist said that it was because my mom cook with wood all her life).
Wrll we sat at the specialist office and then he proceed to go into his computer after he gave us good news and he look at the ct scan he said clean, then blood test I was very allergic to dandelions, then he got to the pulmonary function test and he said "if somebody show me this graph which is curve I will say this person had PF". I said to him but you just gave us good news. He was quiet and gave me asmanex puff and said take this, again I said what about the curve on the graph? He said come and see me in dec and if you cannot breath come and see me before.
i left with mix feelings. I made an appt with my regular dr. And I asked him about it, he got the letter the specialist sent him and gave me a copy and his comment was that the specialist was not sure
I wanted a second opinion but my dr said to wait for dec which was my next appt. December came and I went to see him for the second time , he had a student doctor with him, I asked again about my concerns since my last appt with him and he said " I stand to what I said " and he said could I listen to your lungs and he said that now he could heard crakling on both of my lungs and that he was retesting me . I had done all the tests again but I don't see him until February 5 because he is in holidays. I have a second opinion on Feb 19.
i don't know if it's stress but in the last 3 months I had a bad left hip that made me limp for a month, then I woke up one morning and my lower back was luck and I was not confortable at all, then in the last 2 weeks my upper back begin to have pain very inflamed and the only thing that help is Advil , the x-Ray came clean.
My ribs also hurt and my chest muscle.
I am not coughing as much as in the last month but I still cough. I don't cough. While I sleep which is good. I have a humidifier all night on my room.
I m a 59 year old lady. I m so stress out about this and I m trying not to worry but our mind is hard to control sometimes . I was taking symbicort but I don't think it was helping and made me anxious and not wanting to be alone. Right now I m not taming anything except Advil por the inflamation on my back which is in the same area my lungs are. Please if you have anything similar or some suggestions let me know thanks
