My GP has booked me in for a reversibility test in a couple of weeks, I got a letter telling me not to use my salbutamol within 4 hour of the test, does this mean I need to miss my seretide too? Does the test mean that she is now doubting the diagnosis or is it a normal part of a review?
I'm not entirely sure it'll show anything unless my asthma *happens* to be bad that day, as between exacerbations I'm *very* well and my peak flows are about as good as they can get. I'm a bit worried if there's no significant change after the salbutamol dose my GP might withdraw my asthma meds, I feel abit like just as it's coming under control my she's giving up. Apart from a few blips (all explained by, a cold, dust from building work and inadvertantly drinking something with some addatives my body doesn't seem to like) my peak flow diary looks pretty good. Since she switched my Symbicort to Seretide on Monday I'm feeling much better, I'm sleeping better, my hands have stopped shaking so I'm not constantly dropping things, so far I haven't had a migraine though it's early days on that one (on symbicort I was having one *at least* once a week). I also got a new PB for my PEFR this morning all through the magic of seretide, I'm really feeling back to my old self and can't bear to think of it all being taken away again.
