Thanks guys, I appreciate your feedback. The problem is that I was put on two antibiotics through IV while in the hospital as well as high doses of steroids and 2 breathing treatments four times a day. They sent me home in almost the same shape as I was went admitted. I am well over the bronchitis now - it's been like 7 weeks. And I had a pulmonary doctor in the hospital and I did get diagnosed with Vocal Cord Dysfunction after I got better. I can tell when that is acting up - I can feel it. But the congestion in my chest and wheezing has nothing to do with that and my pulmonary doctor won't listen. Sigh. I am on the verge of throwing in the towel and just living with it. The inhalers they had me on sure did help. The pulmonary doc told me to discontinue all of them after my last appointment with her, which was several weeks ago. And since the congestion and wheezing it's every day, there is always a chance I won't have the symptoms when I am at the doc's office. I am just puzzled that this could be something totally new and the docs act like I am OK, just b/c I don't sound as horrible as I did while in the hospital. Anyway, thanks again guys. Hopefully one day we'll get this figured out!
