This fills me with faith in my GP! I went in with a suspected chest infection, have been coughing up mucus and coughing until my lips are blue! I have asthma. I was told by gp it's a "respiratory tract infection" and was given no treatment or help and my SATS test showed 84!
I thought it was my pulse at first, until after coughing my lungs up on the bus to my mom's (health care support worker) she told me what this was. I can't believe my gp did nothing!
