Can anyone help me .I have posted on here before but got no replies .I have recently been going back to the doctors and the hospital now for over a year with these symptoms.I get infections for about teo weeks out of every month ,chest infections ,colds ,ear infections ,I just get rid of one and then two weeks later ive got another .I suffer from ibs too.My doctor did some bloods and they came back that I had a high esr eading of 98 and poor liver function ,poor kidney function.She refered me to see a consultant at the hospital and i have had chest xrays which were fine ,an abnormal bone scan with hot spots on the sternum ,I have had a test for serum electropherisis which came back abnormal and still a high esr .The consultant then tested me for bence jones and this came back normal .My consultant has now said he isnt going to test me any more as he isnt getting any conclusion to the test results .I have been back to see my gp and she has went mad and is going to demand that I have a ct scan as I have had four more episodes of infection where I get the shakes and high temperatures.She seems to think it could be something called bronchiectasis.I have googled this to see what it is .I wanted to know if anyone else has had this and are these the normal symptoms of it .Any help would be appreciated as I have been like this for a long time now and have been worse after each infection I get and im really tired now .
