I used to live in Sydney when this started (I'm Auzzi), which does have high levels of Ozone, particulary where i lived.
I moved 3 months ago to a country town, no pollution here, but since then, as you read nose and throat got better.
Though never had the lung thing until last week, but is of cause related to the White Foamy Pasty stuff (or stress ha).
I'm asthmatic (just wondering do you have asthma?) which could mean that yes, Sydney's Ozone problem could have started it all, as before living in SYdney I was in Yokohama Japan, pretty clean there acctually. I'll have a think about a source, it just never occoured to me that there might be one.
Just wondering if you found the same as me, having a shower or Saleen Nebulizer really helps me, what techniques do you use ? Thanks
CONTINUED from May
April: ENT said everything is fine. Went back home to battle each morning and during the day coughing and drawing this stuff up. Used Rhinocourt of Medication for my nose.
May: Same symptoms,, didn't bother the doc's But Swallowing get much better.
June: Same symptoms didn't bother the Doc. Swallowing is now great, no drip in nose at all.
July: Symptoms changed, my nose is unblocked completely, a great sign BUT Then admitted to hospital the white stuff was deep in my lungs, choking up badly, lost breath and used all the force of my lungs to be able to breath for a few times, Doctors had no idea what to do with me. At times in July I couldn't breath correctly. Bringing up even more white stuff now.
Bit different to you right ? or same ?
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
I'll do a bit more history with me, and tell me if its exactly the same.
Jan: I had swallen Glands Took Antibiotic.
Feb: TOld Antibiotics caused heart burn. Started taking Somac, worked (Note: Never had heart Burn since Feb)
March: Aditted to hospital (with sinus and blocked nose and waking up each morning coughing up the white mucus we both know about, sometimes chalky).
TO BE CONTINUED (maxed out 800 characters
Just wanted to let you know I can relate. If you ever want to talk, you know where to find me.
The last week I've been admitted to hospital for choking up and badly, the white foam mucus (which I believe is what I'm trying to cough up) sits around my voice box and stops me from talking and if I try to cough, it moves to a bad position where I'm having trouble to breath until it settles back on the box.
The last two times I as given a nedulizer with Palmacourt and jumped in the shower, once it took 15 hours and it disapeared without coughing at all, and today when I was admitted, it shifted very easily within 1 hour after the nebulizer.
But they are still baffeled. How are you going with it? Please reply with advise and we can get answers together.
