Hi there I hope that someone out there has gone through this and got help so they can tell me what it is lol..I started with a cough at night when laying down, in the morning when rising and when I laughed. In April I finally got a docs app and he gave me antibiotics. At the time I was worse then when I first got it so the antibiotics took me back to the original state I was in. A doc app 2 weeks later said it's just a virus. For 4 months ? So end of April I decided to go visit kids and drove 1000 km. While on the ferry I started to get short on breath. I have had it since. I am having severe digestive problems and have taken myself off gluten. I was checked for estrogen and thyroid and they were good, although I had missed my cycle for 3 months, they were normal. I have had 12 visits to docs and 3 to the hospital since April 6th. The doc from last nights trip has run the whole series of blood work so will find out today. I have also developed high bp in the last 3 weeks. I would like to say that we are covered by medical and our docs are no better at finding out. I have been told twice now that my lungs and heart are fine so I'm not going to die. Well living is getting very difficult. Hope someone can help. Cheers.
