    Hi Jayne,

    I get all kinds of back pain, so your pain is probably a symptom of the bronchiectasis. The back is very close to the lungs, so I suppose pain in the back is to be expected. When I'm getting an infection one of the first symptoms is pain in the left side of the lower back. I also get a lot of pain around my shoulder blades. Hope the doctor can advise and re-assure you.

    Hi Jayne

    Sorry you are in pain.  I think pain is something that comes with suffering with bronchiectasis .... I haven't found anything that really helps.  My pain is on the left side back and under rib cage left front, although my bronchiectasis is in my right lung middle and lower lobe  Good old fashioned water bottle soothes it a bit.

    Hope your Gp can help in some way.  x

      Hi Jayne

      I think you are right, most doctors know very little about bronchiectasis.  Mind you that is no excuse, if they have a patient with it, they should read up about it and gain knowledge!  I do hope you get on ok tomorrow. x

      Hi Jayne

      Great that you have no infection! 

      Did he say what was inflamed??

      I have just started taking tumeric tablets, which are supposed to help reduce inflammation.    But I would say be careful taking any additional tablets not prescribed by doc, just incase they react with your current meds! I take very little meds apart from paracetamol or ibuprofen for pain, so am ok to take vitamins etc.

      Hope the tablets help settle the pain down, its one thing after another isn't it! 

      Still can't get my head round the fact I have bronchiectasis, but as I must have had it for years and didn't know it,  have realised that I can't change things, just got to get on with it!

      Take care x

    Hi Jayne,  I have had pain in my left shoulder,don't know if it is from the bronci or just tight muscles.  I want to get a massage and see if thaat helps.   Also get pain in lower back around the kidney area, I think that is when I have an infection brewing, if I have pneumonia, I will get pain in my back behind my lungs.
