Hi, so after feeling pretty rubbish yesterday with a sore throat, spiking temp and barking sounding cough, today I have tested positive for Covid on a lateral flow after avoiding the damn thing for 3 years! I have asthma, so am understandably worrying! I am waiting for a call back from GPs as my peak flow has dropped (I’m normally above 500, but at the moment I’m not getting much higher than 400/420) my inhaler does seem to be helping for now though and I actually don’t feel as rough as yesterday, my temp is more stable and the cough seems to be more throaty than chesty at the moment so keeping everything crossed! My asthma is normally pretty well controlled, I’m on Fostair 100/6 one puff twice a day, and Ventolin when required which until now I haven’t really needed since being on Fostair a couple of years ago. I also have Dymista nasal spray too.
My main question is what have other’s experiences been with Covid and asthma? How have you managed? Is there anything I need to look out for, or request from GPs when they call me back? I suspect they’ll prescribe a course of steroids?
