Hi all, I’m wondering if anyone else with bronchiectasis and/or cavitary lesions has this symptom or feels this way. I had MAC which was successfully treated and I have been off meds since April 2017. I also have mild bronchiectasis and two cavitary lesions that remain stable. For several months after I got off meds I felt really good but for the past month and a half I get afternoon fatigue, don’t feel well and have a dry cough. No night sweats or fever.
If I take ibuprofen the cough clears up and I feel better. I don’t really know why ibuprofen would cause my cough to clear up and my primary doc seems confused by this also. I’ve had a chest Xray which is stable since last Xray and my primary doctor only hears a bit of wheezing which is normal for me. Could it be as simple as allergies? Of course I’m paranoid because of previous MAC infection.
