My main symptoms with bronchiectasis are persistent cough, fatigue from coughing and runny nose. I have had this problem for 29 years. It took the doctors and hospitals 20 years to diagnose it. I have not found any relief from it at all. For 11 months of these 29 years, often my cough produced a large amount of blood. Recently I read an article where a woman found relief by taking 1 tsp of black seed oil a day. She was not diagnosed with bronchiectasis but had all the same symptoms.

My symptoms of bronchiectasis are coughing, phlegm, feeling weak in my legs, sleepless nights, breathlessness, and headaches (due to coughing). I am newly diagnosed and am trying to find my new norms. I contracted dengue fever while in SE Asia several years ago that my specialist feels may have caused my condition.

My symptoms of bronchiectasis are coughing, wheezing, sputum, fever, chills and fatigue. Treatment was azithromycin, ethambutol, cimetidine, Flonase nasal spray and probiotic daily for two years. I have been on this regimen since January 2018. I am starting to feel better, less fatigue, no wheezing, and able to take a deep breath now.
