I'm on another chest infection/flu spell. Went to the Dr thinking it was asthma as my immediate family suffer from it but the Dr seemed to think it was just an infection and wanted to put me on antibiotics but I refused due to horrible yeast infections. He gave me pholcodiene(it helps) and painkillers and told me if I still have breathing problems to come back. This is my second time on one of these attacks and the first time I had to go to call an ambulance because I was becoming so dizzy (from hyperventilation) and was put on O2 and given a pump. I've been using the pump now which helps but it's horrible not being able to breathe and I keep getting these nasty infections. Any advice on what to do? Anyone else been through these? It also sets me back quite a lot as well because on the uncontrollable coughing coupled with weakness. What could be causing these asthma like symptoms if it's not asthma?
