I think you should go and get things checked out Caterpillar girl if only to put your mind at rest. I don't smoke but I also have had a lingering cough for more than three weeks. I know there's a virus going around at the moment but I'm going to play safe and make an appointment with my doctor.
Gosh...it's a long time since I used the forum but am back with a new name. Caterpillar Girl, not just my favourite ever song but a name that reminds me of the changes I have gone through since my primary dx back in 2009.
Any way, I have been muddling through with the odd scare here and there since but my weight has plummeted from 10 stone to 8'10 in just 12 weeks. I have a cough but I smoke, I have bone pain in my ribs and back but a scan last year revealed fractures so no further investigation was taken. I am always tired but I work 6 days a week. I'm scared x
