    Hi Jayne  Glad to hear at least your breathing is better.  Do you do mucas clearance  ?  I find  when i can clear my airways I don't feel so tight

    Hi Jayne, good too see the antibiotics are helping fight the infection as for your chest feeling tight it could be due too muscular pains & you might have to wait a while for everything too calm down & settle down. I'm sure it will be ok but if doesn't calm down in a week or go back to your GP. Also see if you can be referred for physiotherapy to help reduce the pain. Good luck & keep smiling :0)

    All kinds of things can make your chest tight - allergies for example. Lots of people with bronchiectasis also have some asthmatic symptoms too. It's boiling hot at the moment and I feel a bit as if I am breathing through soup! The pollen count doesn't help either. I have two puffers - seretide as a preventative to chest irritation and tightness and ventolin (salbutamol) for instant help with breathing. When I am in a room with a cat I frequently have to grab my ventolin puffer to help my chest tightness. Steam helps too. Speak to your doctor. Hope you get some help . It's a bit miserable sometimes especially in this heat.

    Hi Jayne,  When I was really bad this winter I pulled a muscle from coughing so hard.  Maybe you are sore from your infection and it will ease up eventually.   Hope so.  feel better soon.
