Hi I have got a couple of questions. My daughter who is 9 has had asthma since she was 18 mths and her main symptom has always been a cough. She has never wheezed (except when she also had a chest infection). Over time I have learnt to recognise when she gets bad as she always says she is fine (!) until she can't speak. However this week she has really thrown me! She has not had a cold just a sore throat and earache, her peak flow was ok just about 50 under her normal but she said she had a tight chest ( a first) she had no cough and no night-time symptoms. She seemed quite breathless so to be on the safe side we went to the GP and ended up on pred. This hasn't worked too well and she is still on 4 hourly ventolin so we are back to the GP tomorrow. I guess I would like to know if anyone has had a similar experience. I must admit I am concerned that this time there was no symptoms that anyone could pick up (the school etc) I have tried to impress on her how important it is to say if she is unwell but she is only 9! Any advice/experience would be appreciated. (Have also posted separately about my son)
