Still Have Breathlessness & Coughing?
For Three Weeks I have been getting alot of breathlessness and Pluss I had the flu four weeks ago, coughing constantly have been to seemy doctor and out of hours service several times who are giving me antibiotics all the time. I have got to the point where I am feeling quite agitated thinking what this is and I am one of these people I think the worst of everything as I have been browsing symptoms of lung cancer too and the symtoms I have are on there which have made me worry even more. When I wake up in the mornings I feel I dont cough for quite a while but when it starts its quite bad and so is the breathlessness. Can anyone tell me what else I can possibly do Am Really Worried

Thanks for your posts, I dont smoke myself but have been around a lot of people who have over the years. When the doctor listened to my chest she told me my chest sounded quite noisy

You really need to check with a doctor


Provided that you are seeking regular medical advice that is ok. Please don't be tempted to read up on related conditions comparing symptoms etc. You'll end up making yourself worse. If you think that your GP is missing something ask him to refer you to a physician.

Best wishes, J

lots of sleep and water, ive got asthma, and i have the same symptoms every day, difference is that i weeze. its proberly that time where you have to get sick because you cant always be healthy aye? or you can deffinately get a second opinoin, i reakon to just ride it out and try keeping to your daily routine aye!

I wonder do you have asthma? I'm asthmatic and what you have sounds like the dose I got recently. I caught a cold that cleared up fairly quickly but left me with breathlessness and a cough. I didn't have a chest infection as such and so wasn't prescribed antibiotics but anti-inflammatories.

Don't read any more medical websites. All they're good for is needlessly alarming you.

Also, go see a different doctor and tell them you don't want any more antibiotics. The only thing they're good for in the aftermath of a flu is for clearing up chest infections. Also, tell them you think you have lung cancer and get them to check it out for you. Thinking about it will drive you nuts. Do something about it.

you've probably got or had a slight chest infection or maybe asthma. Go to another doctors, get a second opinion and get urself checked out again explain how worried you are. I've always had a weak chest getting chest infections at least once a year. I went to my doctors al the time and all i got was antibiotics and fobbed off that there was nothing he cud do. Went to another doctor who told me i had asthma. That was a year ago now and i havent had a chest infection since.

Go to a different doctor and get a second opinion.

ive been the same but i have asthma too. You should demand an x-ray to rule out anything serious

it's allergy perhaps.but to be sure, why don't you have a chest xray to rule out possibility of pulmonary tuberculosis. are you a smoker?? that maybe chronic bronchitis. don't think about cancer yet.

you need to get your chest x rayed...i had similar symptoms and it took 4 different types of antibiotics before they found the right one...now i am fine...i had pleurisy...all better now...stress does not help...it is more than likely totally treatable....good luck and go and DEMAND a chest x ray....

It could be an antibiotic resistant bacteria causing the infection. You may have allergies, asthma is a possibility. Lung cancer is of course a possibility especially if you smoke or are an ex smoker. You need to get checked out by a different doctor and ask for a chest referral;
