Hi can anyone help me?!

I am a 25 year old female, and for about the last 8 months I have been coughing up yellow and clear phlegm constantly. I have been to my GP many times and have been prescribed more courses of antibiotics than I can remember, and although these seem to work temporarily the problem soon returns. I also have constant fatigue and find it a struggle to do everyday tasks.

I am otherwise healthy, have never smoked and until these problems started was very active and sporty (competing at national level, which is obviously now compromised- very hard for an athlete to handle:().

Can anyone shed any light on what could be wrong and how to treat it? I would appreciate any suggestions as I am getting desperate!

  • Hi thanks for reply! Asthma tests were negative, what kind of allergies might it be? How do they test for them?!

  • Have you lost weight? Maybe you should have a scan to rule on any other problems in the lungs.
