HI there and congratulations on the birth!

How long have your courses of antibiotics been for 1 or 2 weeks! Perhaps you need to stay on them for a longer length of time!

Is the GP thinking about starting you on any pred to help!

Sounds like you need to hound your GPs or contact your specialist sectretary for advice - they need to find a better solution so that you can have a better quality of life to enjoy those first months with your baby!

Take care!

Love Lesley

Hi there,
something that can cause breathlessness is aneamia, low iron level or perhaps thyroid problem. Maybe its worth asking your gp to do some blood test to check things out especially as its not log since you are having a baby.
It is strange to feel breathless, there must be a cause. Definately worth checking out before it gets anyworse.

Good Luck
