Its been a long time since ive been on here but hoping someone is kind enough to help…
I have had a Cold which developed over Christmas with a cough.
The cough has changed from chesty to tickly with casping for breath sometimes being sick ending in a sneeze and an overwelming urge to burp. Which if i don’t my throat feels restrictive. That i can deal with it sound worse than it is.
… Have been to the doctor and been given antibiotics.
Cannot sleep without the light on.
Since last weekend have been feeling terrible anxiuos for most of the time it helps to keep my mind octupide but i casp for breath if i don’t i can feel it developing which scares me more.
I have become afraid of the dark, being on my own (which I love), if i get to warm symptoms apear again, i when back to the doctor on Tuesday and he said it was a virus and gave me more antibiotics (i know they don’t work on virus’) i took them and in Thursday had two attacks and very tearful at work frightened my colleages and boss.
I phoned the doctors to be told that morning sugery had finished and she would talk to the nurse which she did and rang me back, she said to stop taking the tablets and to make an appointment for Monday if i felt the same. But I could go to our Drop in centre if i felt the need (we dont have an A&E in the town anymore).
After insistance from my boss (i didn;t need much persuadeing) a colleage took me to the centre. They were really nice and he tested my oxegen levels and lungs and he said with my complection etc and what i told him he confirmed what i thought it was anxiety.
I have been trying to get hold of my MS Nurse since January for other reasons but tried again yesterday and left a third message, she normally rings back within 24-48 hrs i am sure there is good reason but at a loss.
I am so sorry its very long winded but i am hoping someone can give me some advice. I would be so greatful.
