Bronchiectasis - Symptoms

The most common symptom is coughing up phlegm, often in large amounts every day. Some people may feel tired, experience breathlessness or wheeze and may also have problems with their sinuses. Less common symptoms include coughing up blood and chest pain.

An important feature of bronchiectasis is periods of acute worsening of symptoms (also called exacerbation). It is thought that these episodes are due to increased infection and inflammation in the airways.
