Just wondered if I am the only one with this problem. I have brittle asthma and if I am well I can do a Peak Flow and I become a bit wheezy. If I do the standard 3 Peak Flows then I have a full attack and need a nebulizer. Needless to say, I dont record my Peak flow much as it makes me ill. When I go to see my consultant I can be really well. I do my lung function tests and then afterwards my chest is rubbish! I was in hospital with a bad attack a week ago and a doctor wanted me to do my Peak flow in recus whilst I couldnt speak, my gases were rubbish, I was on Aminophylline and Magnesium. I refused to do it because I knew it would make me much worse than I already was and they had a go at me for refusing to try a peak flow. I am starting to think that I am the only one who has this problem. The medical staff certainly dont understand and argued with me for the whole time I was in hospital. They wanted my chest to be better, yet everytime they pressured me into doing a Peak flow my chest got worse and took several nebs to recover. Eventually I told them I was not going to do anymore Peak flows as it was making me worse but they werent impressed. They said that nobody else seemed to have a problem with doing peak flow except me! I really cant believe that I am the only person who has experienced this. Any advice would be great.
