It started back in mid January, I started with cough and pain in chest. It went on for about 2 weeks before I went to doctors, doctor said I had chest infection and give me week course of antibiotics. I felt very tired and had a couple of days out of work to see if I could kick it in to touch. When I just about finished course and felt no better I when back to doctors and he give me a week of steroids. Took them, and while I was taken them I felt better, wasn't coughing as much and chest wasn't painful, but as soon as I stopped taking the tablets the cough comes back and cold symptons/headache. Went back to doctors and he sent me for chest x Ray and give me a second course of steroids. X Ray came back fine, also put a phlegm sample in for test also fine. Anyway after second course, cough is back feeling tired and a bit breathless. Went back again and given antibiotics and steroids again, doctor said I had pockets of congestion on my chest, sats were 96 but had been 99. Half way though and now have swollen glands in right side of neck, unlike the last twice the cough hasn't gone. Rang doctor and he asked me to go and get bloods done which I'm waiting for results.
Just a little background, I'm 38, non smoker but I am obese I work full time in care for elderly.
Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong with me?
