Hi im just looking for advice before i go to the doctors with my wife. She has been going to the doctor for several years ( she is 37 and physically fit) with a really chesty ,mucus , cough. Duting this time it really knocks her for six with really low energy levels and sympotms of IBS. over the years the doctors have just given her medicine to clear it up and then left it another year.
However this year it came back alot worse and i insisted that she raise her concerns with the Gp ( however , i still dont think she has told them how bad she gets ) i could hear her chest bubbling , a really bad cough and her energy levels are so bad that sometimes moving is difficult. The GP sent her for an x ray and they said she had a shadow on her lung ( she has never smoked) . The gp only mentioned this in passing and put her on an inhaler for one month , no improvement ,so on tablets for a month , no change and she had to go to an emergency doctor last week who cave her some COAX tablets and told her to take these for a week before returning fo a follow up in two weeks.
im just looking for any advice as it is really hard seeing her like this
