User :   hello doc
Doctor :   Hi
User :   can i post my case history?
Doctor :   yes
User :   Doctor pls help me.. I am suffering continuously for the last 6 months at the age of 25 and came here for last resort. It all started from August, 2010. For skin problems(itching) the doctor gave me medicines and steroids(omnacortil 10).. During the course, I got cold and cough and it did not cure with normal azithromycin antibiotics. After viewing chest xray he gave me 10 taxim injection but it did not cure the problem. At last I had to be hospitalised and diagonised as pneumonia affected and was treated with clarithromycin and augmentin duo tablets. I was spitting blood only once at that morning, so doc examined the sputum but no tuberculosis was detected. they released me after 3 days with mild cough and told that it will subside gradually. But it did not subside and after near about 1 month, I again got a cold and had to be hospitalised for 15 days. Now the respiratory experts tested sputum, city scan, xray, expensive IGE, PIANCA, CIANCA, HIV those tests but everything was normal execpt the cold and cough. So they observed for that long time with nebulizers and clarithromycin tablets and released me after 15 days with monteluklust tablets and foracort fort inhalers for after the hospital again blood was there for 1 day but doctors said that blood was from tearing of tissues for excessive coughing and it is of no concern.They told me that i have developed cough variant asthma and treated me with inhalers(no improvement after using it, but doctor insisted).I was recovering (mild cough was present though) and joined the job but again caught a cold and this time with high fever. (previous 2 cases no fever was present). the doctor gave me normal azithromycin tablets and it recovered partially. This happend in last of November,2010. From then on I catch a cold after 7-10 days and doctor again treated with balokem 10, doxycyciline courses subsequently.along with inhalers. But there is always a low grade fever (98.8- 99 F ) at the afternoon for 4-5 hours everyday till today along with mild coughing. Currently I am taking monteluklust tablets along with INditel H ( for high B.P.) and ocassionally those antibiotic courses. I have done PFT and mantoux test but everything was normal, so doctor stopped the inhaler as I do not have any breathing problems.Now at every afternoon this low grade fever stays for 4-5 hours and then gone. I am totally becoming frustrated and depressed. I was treated by one of the best respiratory specialists of city (kolkata,India) and hedetected no additional problems. Please help me in my current condition as it is my last hope now. After six month of pneumonia this is really frustrating. Will I be able to go back to my normal life again ?:( :(
