  • I have always been an avid long distance runner and never had lung problems.
    2 years ago I was told I suffer from severe sinusitis (which has never bothered me), and have now recently had two extensive sinus surgeries to "fix" this problem, which was supposedly the reason of my coughing and difficulty breathing. My coughing is to expel the massive quantities of mucous which my body is now producing. Also, on low dose prednisone my eosinophil levels are over 1900.
    My trachea is very sore. Is it possible I have some disorder with my trachea that is causing a secondary lung inflammation? Or tertiary- origin being from the sinuses?
