No, but recently my feet and ankles began to swell and they kept asking me if I had the symptoms you’re asking about. If you have those symptoms AND swollen feet and ankles, you should see your doctor.
I have a cough and shortness of breath but no swelling in feet or ankles
Yes I do. Had pulmonary doc do tests and he says I’m fine. Allergist thinks it’s related to allergies. On new meds for that and he gave me an inhaler for when/if I feel I need it.
What kind of tests did the pulmonologist do
Lung function test and pulmonary stress test.
Melissa Alston oh ok did they do an X-ray
No, but my allergy doc thinks I should. I’ll bring it up at next GP appointment.
Melissa Alston oh ok yea I had a chest X-ray and pulmonary function test done and it was all clear so not sure why I’m still having the cough
Yes me too. Using an. İnhaler when it's to tuff
Yea same how long have u had the cough
since Jan this year
Maureza Roy did you get evaluated by a pulmonologist
Kanwal Lara not yet. Rheymie will. Decide on my next visit if necessary. However my GP has advised him to refer me
Maureza Roy oh ok
Not a cough but my breathing feels very heavy. I am an asthmatic but since quitting smoking 5 yrs ago I haven't had an attack. I don't like this heaviness though x
Did u get it checked
Kanwal Lara I've got an asthma clinic app next Monday xx
Yes i do
Yes! And after many appointments and tests they finally figured out my lymph nodes that are not draining properly. I had so much fluid in my lungs, it had to be drained.
Omg that’s scary so sorry u had to go through that how long did u have the cough for
Kanwal Lara thanks. Off and on for a year.
I had bronchitis. Asthma and sinus infection.
I get a bit of a sore throat, anyone else? I think it may be from using my symbicort inhaler
Are u on an inhaler because of the cough?
Yes but I also have copd
My husband has seropositive RA diagnosed last year. Only on Methotrexate and has had 2 cough’s since April, lasting up to a month each time with shortness of breath and not feeling good. He has never had any cough or illness in 11 years prior to RA
Did he go to a pulmonologist
Kanwal he did not. Chest X-ray was normal and cough cleared up.
I now. Both. Not sure why. Always have a scatchy throat.
Have u been to a pulmonologist? How long have u had it
Yes both chronic bronchitis
Yes. All of those. Cardiologist has said nothing is wrong with my heart. Humidifier at night has helped tremendously with the cough. Sometimes just standing up makes me feel like I've run a half mile. Ankles are killing me.
Did u see a pulmonologist
I do at times .
Is it consistent? How long have u had it
