I’m so disappointed. I had a tummy bug for three days and despite all that involved and it wasn’t pleasant at all, I didn’t have any SOB or the dreaded panic attacks. Yesterday I was right as rain so made myself a mini roast and did some ironing and took myself upstairs to bed for the first time in 3 days. I’ve been sleeping on the sofa near the downstairs loo in case I had to make a run for it. Back to normal with 1.5 hrs sleep and panic attacks. Any ideas anyone? Saw the chest consultant And he has changed my inhalers (Back to) Fostair 200 and a new one, Spiriva 2.5. How do these two work in conjunction for other people on here ? And of COURSE I am to continue with Ventolin, despite what they said at the doctors! A big problem I have is with my tongue and throat. They are bone dry and actually sticking together and there is a horrible taste going on. The consultant gave me Nystan but I’ve been using that and it’s nit made much difference. I’ve also tried Daktarin as someone kindly recommended on here but that’s just too difficult to put on the very back of my tongue without gagging. Any other suggestions please? Finally, going to send me for a breathing test (?) and another CT scan.
sorry it’s so long and p.s. it’s my birthday today! I’m 67. His did that happen !! Xx
