Hi - I been reading all the messages posted and can't believe I have only just discovered this website!!
My 8 year old daughter was first disgnosed with Asthma at the age of 5 - just as she started school and it has been a constant battle since. If only we knew all the things then we know now!!
She was recent admitted to A&E for a nebuliser and I thought that I was overreacting - as like many other I am always under the impresssion it is normal with Asthma.
Mid. week last week and until last couple of nights she has been having nightmares to the extreme they are bringing on an attack!!
I just wondered if anyone else experiences this?
I have read with interest other peoples views about behaviour - as yes we experience this and I now know that this is a sign of her being unwell.
She is on Seretide Inhaler, Singulair daily and Prednisolone frequently (which I am allowed to keep at home for emergencies!) And of course the good old Ventolin Inhaler 3 times a day!
At the moment she also has a chest infection which they think is a result of such a bad attack on Sunday!
Does any of this sound familiar to others?
