Hi,I havent been on here for a little while but faulty lungs have taken over my life again!! I am taking Seretide 500 1 puff morning and night and montelukast each night when things are good. Things have not been consistently under control since October. i have been to A & E twice and have had three courses of preds. The third one I started last Friday taking 6 a day for 5 days. I returned to doc on Monday as I had been unable to eat or walk across the room without needing a half hour rest to recover! This time I saw my usual doc who gave me 50 more preds and told me to reduce down gradually at the end of original course. She told me to return today to see how I was going and has now given me a course of antibiotics and 50 more preds and says to keep going at higher dosage until at least the end of the week. I have now asked to see a consultant privately (although this will take me the rest of the year to pay for!!!) which I hope to do before the end of the month. I really want to get my moneys worth so I wondered if anyone has any suggestions of questions I should ask when I am there.
Also does anyone think that preds can cause mid cycle bleeding?
And one more thing. A friend suggested I try homeopathy. I am at the point where I will try anything. Does anyone have any experience of complimentary therapies or dietary changes that have helped.
Sorry to have burbled on for so long but I was just hoping someone on this wonderfully supportive site may be able to help.
