Having had pneumonia in January , and 3 months later still not feeling well & after bi-weekly visits to the GP I finally got referred to hospital , where tests confirmed I have Bronchiectasis , was told initially was mild , but since having been referred to a chest specialist , have been told it's Moderate . Have had 2 sessions of physio , puts on carbocistene & nasonex. They also finally did sputum tests & discovered all the antibiotics I had previously taken were resistant to this bug ! Don't get me wrong I do feel better but still not right & have a constant cold feeling on left side , which no one seems to be able to explain . I also get dramatic temperature increases , at the height of it , it felt like my body was fighting against itself , one side hot the other cold ! Bizarre I know ...
now I have the constant cold sensation and occasional blasts of heat but oddly no raised temperature ? Anyone else getting this ?
I am quite concerned abt the diagnosis , cannot stop thinking about it & until was diagnosed , had never heard of the condition !
am doing daily breathing excersises & huffs , but unless have an infection , not that productive . Also ,have been given emergency supply of antibiotics , the other day felt bit achy and cough started again within change in Color of sputum so I started taking antibiotics again ? Is this right ? I am terrified I will become immune to them , as it is I am Penicillin allergic !
any advice wil be very welcome .
Thank you all in advance
