    I have been thanking people who post.
    Cough and mucus still here...actually clears up totally for hours at a time and then returns. The cough is better but tomorrow I s the last day on steroids and cough pills so I thought it would be better. I see her again Wednesday so I expect more tests coming. Drats. But I am alert and busy and happy so not feeling as sick as I am.

    Okay half good if you are alert, busy and happy. Thatís more than some of us can say. Other half not so good since cough and mucus still showing up. Glad you are seeing Dr Wednesday.

    ((((((Lazarus)))))) ~

    The steroids are probably keeping you alert and happy, so please be prepared for a possible let down in energy. I'm sorry to tell you this, but it can happen.

    I know you aren't looking forward to seeing your doctor on Wednesday and potentially having more testing. You also want your physician to be thorough and to find out what is wrong with you, so you can receive the proper treatment.

    Do you know whether the infusion drug you take (I'm sorry, I know I should remember the name, but I don't) can cause respiratory issues? Are you taking any other medications, which might have this as a side effect? I always start by looking at the meds, because most doctors don't begin there, and quite often, the drugs are the culprit.

    Sending healing prayers your way and answers to help you soon ~

    Love & Light,

    Thanks....the cause of this coughing can be so many things and I have lots of docs paying attention but, as you know only too well, it takes forever to explore and test each possible cause. I’m going with the least serious ideas and so I have a humidifier running in this very dry bedroom and living room. I have eliminated caffeine.

    Many years ago I did monthly steroid infusions so I am experienced. I am taking advantage of the energy I get and aware of the crash that may come. Thanks for the reminder!

    So, I saw my doc and the nurse practitioner today. They sent me for another chest X-ray. That came back clear again so tomorrow morning I have a cat scan. They prescribed an inhaler to use when I am having trouble. (Albu...something.). Got to learn how to use it.
