we haven't had a good month with my son. right at the beginning of May he developed a bad cold and cough, with asthma symptoms mostly at night(wheeze). 3 visits to asthma nursed/dr's got us nowhere as there was no wheeze when examined. About 10 days after that had cleared it started again exactly the same, but a more persistent wheeze at night, after 6 nights of wheezing I was relieved to be given singulair, that evening saw a huge improvement and he soon returned to normal. This lasted a week before it started up again and we took him to out of hours dr's who agreed he was working harder/not breathing right but didn't think it was enough for steroids. We got anti-b for crackle/possible chest infection and was advised to increase blue inhaler. Last night I was not at all happy, even after blue inhaler was very crackly and was doing lots of short sharp breaths using tummy muscles, so took him to A&E and after around an hour or more in the waiting room we finally saw a dr around 1am. but by this time he was fully awake and there was no wheeze or pulling in of tummy and so were sent home. I am just do fed up and tired, I don't know what to do. His medication is obviously not protecting him but without dragging a doctor to his bed when he is asleep what can you do. He is not under a specialist, do you think it is time I pushed for one? I have booked to see gp next week, and will see if he will refer him.
