It sounds like you need to go and see the GP in the morning.

Just coming out the other end of this, did you get the hayfever/allergy symptoms or the breathlessness???

Avena... dont have time !

Bree... i have had a really bad chest and cough with assoc. breathlessness but thought that was something different. have you had this? what were your symptoms?

which side is the pain on? any nausea or vomiting? Is your poop slimy? Does it have blood stain? Odd colour?

Started Sunday night at about midnight, sneezing woke me up !!! FFS

Spent the rest of the night, sneezing and blowing and not getting much sleep. I was also really cold.

Monday, got an opportunity to go back to bed for an hour, slept for five hours. !!

Went to work on Tuesday despite feeling miz and cold, but staying at home is boring. Yesterday evening struggling to catch a breath, this morning no problem.

Today, intermittent headache, coughing, coughing, coughing.

Then this afternoon, intimate knowledge of our WC's.

It appears to have passed, cough gone, breathlessness passed, itchy throat/hayfever symptoms gone.

Apologies if this is TMI.

It sounds like it could be coming from your gall bladder/liver. You really should go and see your GP. Symptoms of Gallstones sound similar to your symptoms but have white, floating poo because of the fat and excess bilirubin. Could also be IBS but these are only guesses. You need to see your GP. Really!
