Thats kind of my story of last year.. turned out to be a mix of things. First, bad allergies, including dust & I was in gymnastics where the gym has crazy amounts of dust. Then chronic bronchitis didn't help, which was why everytime I went on prednisone I would feel better- but then get more sick a few weeks later.
Have you been tested for allergies? Chest xray? Those might help. Also sometimes it just takes one longg course of strong antibiotics to kill a nasty infection.
