Pulmonologist 3 Times. No Diagnosis and 2 tests PFT’s that are nowhere aligned.
Symptoms- Great Question.
-Can jog and keep pace last 5K 29min BUT if I max (run hard) I wheeze.
- When I walk a flight of stairs I have to catch my breath before I can start talking
-Three weeks ago my wife and I had both runny nose and sneezing on Day 1. On Day 4 she was done BUT I had chest pain (went to chest)and Day 5 coughed up yellow mucous and the pain subsided in chest. Now from Day 6 to today Day 22 my phlegm is back with throat clearing. When I lay on my back with my neck arched my vocal cords and sound feel and sound scratchy.
Million Dollar Question- is this Chronic Bronchitis?
I think I have CB I just don’t cough - I clear Phelgm with throat clear, my Pulmonary tests where completely different so I have no idea. I feel like I just smoked a cigarette and have not had one in over a year. These tests with GP’s, ENT, Pulmonologist, Heart (PFT,s,Endoscopy, Echo, CT of Abdomen) 2021 had cost me some BIG Dollars BTW and I’m still at square one. One pulmonologist told me no need to label me at such a young age.
The Mega Million Dollar Question
Is the Phelgm in throat coming from my chest or Nose?
I think my biggest concern is I have 6 year olds, I’m 44, wife wants another kid and I’m thinking BABE if I feel like this PF1 at 44 and if the damage is done and this is a chronic disease where do you think I will be at 60?
Just strange and is anyone going through what I’m or has been down this rode?
