hi, I have Tracheitis when i was young. The way

hi, I have Tracheitis when i was young. The way the doctors said it sounds like it was linked to asthma. Whenever i fall ill, i have serious breathing problems and will be exempted from physical activities for days. Normal chores will get me panting and the only time i will be breathing fine is sitting up. Even if the illness is over, i will still have a period whereby i will have breathing problems and lack of ability to breathe normally. I have trekked hills over the years for around 2-3 times. Every time, i will feel breathless and breathe more unstably as compared to the others. I will be climbing a hill with the school this coming November overseas. What would be necessary for me to reduce such symptoms that i might have? Is an inhaler necessary, i really would want to climb that hill and not suffer that badly.

Hi I was diagnosed with tracheitis yesterday. I have a lot of pain when I cough and yesterday I had alternately steaming and blocked nose. I have woken this morning with bloody sinuses full of crusty mucous. I have a prescription for antibiotics but unable to get them until later today. I also feel extremely sick and can t eat - would that be caused by post nasal drip? Is it likely to clear up fairly quickly once the medication kicks in?

Hi, I ve had a bad cold for 5 days now, and today the general symptoms have begun to ease. However I still have no voice to speak of (no pun intended), and I have started to cough up almost solid fleshy dark brown mucus . I saw an on call GP who diagnosed tracheitis, and prescribed amoxicillin , but when I have looked this up online I can t see any mention of dark brown mucus in relation to tracheitis. Should I make an appointment to see my own GP, or should the mess prescribed shift whatever I ve got?
