  1. Hi all Update - I was sent for cat dander RAST tests I think they call it IGE Immunology blood tests, I received the results back yesterday and the normal reading for IgE is supposed to be between 0-80> my reading was 147 therefore its a positive allergy for cat dander and its causing my breathing issues Thought I would let you all know p.s. my full blood count was normal
  2. Yes we have chatted I remember 😊. I used my brown inhaler last night and took a anti histamine before bed , whether I coughed during the night I dont know but I was not woken by coughing. I just feel that LC must be what’s happening here as the meds and advice to keep the cats out the room etc does nothing so what else could it be? Im literally fed up of a feather feeling in my throat all the time! And a tight band feeling over my throat making a wheeze when i inhale!
  3. Thank you Im so nervous about it
  4. Im sorry to read about your uncle. Its so worrisome though, the only place I can turn is here!
  5. Hi all Coughing again, waking myself up, its dry then productive but mostly dry........my story is so long I cant go through it all again but basically been coughing and having a wheeze from my throat for about 2 years now (the wheeze is not my lungs its from my throat) - been for bloods, chest xrays, inhalers, reflux meds, steroid inhalers, you name it I have had the meds....I have not had a ct scan yet though (going to try and get my dr to refer me) - the Respiratory consultant I saw back in October said I had pet allergies (I have two cats).......Anti histamines do not help me one bit! I have been put o 30mg a day of cetrizine! My question therefore leads me to how long can you have lung cancer and not be diagnosed as I think I have a tumor in my lung that is causing me to cough for the last 2 years! I am panicking and very scared to even cough anymore, no nice to be feeling this way! I have so much going on in my life right now and this cough and cancer worry is getting me so down!

    Thank you - if it makes you feel better the Consultant Radiologist told me that out of the hundreds of head MRI's he does very very few come back with a tumor so please do not worry! Have you been to your Dr?

    Brain tumor fears!

    Hi everyone So that pressure feeling has gone for a few days and now its back with a vengeance....... I am convinced now that I have a brain tumor.......and well its my last days on earth (seriously), I can not cope anymore with this worry......... I noticed that its not there in the morning however I have a sit down job and when I stand up the pressure in my head is like my head is going to explode and my ears go all deaf......it then goes after 30 seconds or so......BUT if I get up slowly it seems the pressure is less and then the headache or forehead pressure is less prominent.......I am so scared and worried! Anyone talk to me and calm me down please.....

    Hi all I had my eyes thoroughly tested on Saturday and they are looking normal i.e. no pressure on the optic nerves etc (that one would expect from a tumor) but I do need glass for distance. My MRI is scheduled for June 25th

    Yes I guess you are right, just frightening to go and then wait.....hopefully I will be ok

    My husband tells me the Dr is being thorough with me and doing an MRI first to rule out nasties.......which I believe but its horrible to wait for an appointment and then the results....takes over your life!

    Sounds painful - my headache seems to be on the top of my head today more so than the forehead and the right side of my temple.....its all so scary.....I am hoping they can see me relatively quickly for the MRI worst thing after that is waiting for the results.....
