    I've started something that won't stop. Last night I crawled upstairs too quickly- because I'm a right eejit and didn't want to be seen by my 10 year old son! - got to the top of the stairs and stood up. Couldn't catch my breath, heart doing a dicky-fit and I ended up coughing and retching for ages over the loo. Lovely.
    Today I've found I can't stand up straight without setting off the cough-retch drama.
    Walking around bent over which is some control over it- but - well, it's not ideal.
    Anyone have any ideas PLEASE!

    Sounds like maybe bronchitis with bronchial spasms.

    Very odd. I have no idea. Sounds horrible though.

    Thanks both. I think bronch spasm could be it. Managed to stand up this morning - just have to be very careful and slow. I so love this illness- always trying something new on me.:eek:
