I was recently diagnosed with Bronchiectasis (1 day ago!) and it has been a great comfort to read about other people and their experiences with this condition and knowing that I'm not alone.
I'm 24 and it is actually a relief to finally know what has been causing me to constantly get sick. I say this as in the past I have experienced various chest infections, EB virus, Bronchitis (several times) and pneumonia. Right now I have an infection that I've been trying to shake off for the last 6 weeks. Unfortunately I am allergic to many antibiotics which can make it difficult.
As part of bronchiectasis many of you know about that lovely cough. I am able to have at least 10 minutes without coughing but when I do it can get to the point where I choke and am physically ill. Today I woke up with a sharp pain near my shoulder blade and was wondering if any of you have experienced this? Is the cough the cause?
