Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Board Index


I understand what you are going through. I went through a period in my life where I would get bronchitis about twice a year at least. I would have no fever but an annoying cough where I would cough up tons of mucus. I had always had allergies since I was young and just assumed that it brought my immune system under attack and I caught every cold going around. I finally went on allergy shots and did that for 4 years. After 4 years, I decided to get rechecked and found I had asthma. My small airways were pretty inflamed and obstructed. I now take Advair daily which has helped, but my lung function is still not completely normal. I worry about this daily. It has really affected my life in a lot of ways. I go through periods where I don't think about it at all and have no noticeable symptoms, but then the weather will change or I'll get a scratchy throat and then the worry comes back. The last time I had bronchitis I had to take a Medrol Pack (oral steroids) to get over the cough. But at least since taking the Advair, I don't get sick that much. I don't have a morning cough where I cough up phlegm. It's been almost a year since I had my last coughing spell. I really try to stay well and take lots of vitamina C and vitamins to keep my immune system up.

You might consider going to an allergist to see if allergies are causing this. They will give you some tests to see if you do have asthma. You will feel better and have peace of mind. Good luck!
