I know there are lots of knowledgable people on here so asking for some of your advice
I have a history of not been terribly compliant with inhalers (seretide 125 - 2 puffs AM and PM)
However, I learned my lesson when I needed 2 courses of steroids in August and for whe whole of August I've taken my inhalers every day.
I went to see the Asthma nurse; my peak flows are improved, but I still have on some days 15-20% variability. Other days I feel fine and can cycle, row and go swimming without a problem. She said to stay on same treatment even though I was still needing Salbutamol inhaler everyday.
In the last few days I've started to feel rough again; tight chest, PF not dramatically worse but have a cough again and needed more than once everyday - I think it may be attributed to the nice dry sunny weather as that always seems to make me worse!
I've booked an appointment with my GP as I don't feel control is great and think that I may need stepping up, at least in the short term to gain control but can't see my GP for just under 3 weeks.
Anyone else get this when they feel very tight but PF doesn't fall dramatically? What else can I do?
