However over Sunday things got worse, so my wife asked for a doctors appointment to get it sorted out.
The doctor gave me a thorough examination, and then after hearing me say that I did not want anymore antibiotics, he decided that enough was enough, and has refered me to see a chest specialist. I confess that the doctors have been saying this for two years, so it's taken long enough, but hopefully I will get an answer.
This last session has dragged on since November, in which time I have been given 6 courses of antibiotics, but it got to the stage I felt so ill that I did not want to take any more
This has been going on for the last 3-4 years, and never seemed to go away unless we went somewhere sunny.
This is getting distressing at times with all of the coughing and tight chest, and I confess that I have got to the stage I am losing interest in food and hobbies.
We were supposed to attend a meeting in London today, but I said that I really did not feel like travelling anywhere, because I get embarrassed when I start coughing and feeling out of breath.
Now I just have to wait 6 weeks for my appointment in Sunderland General in early May, but it's looking positive and we may get the answers to my problems
