Hi. Sorry to be a pain, I'm fairly new here and going through a very uncontrolled stage of my asthma. In no way am I anywhere near as severe as many, but this is all a bit new to me and I could do with some help.
My asthma was controlled until I had my daughter last year. Since then, its been all over the place and I'm currently wrestling with different meds trying to find the right combination. At the moment, I'm on Severent and Qvar 100 - 2 puffs of each twice a day, and singular at night time.
I now have a cold, and hacking cough. I can feel a sight rattle, but not all the time. I've coughed so much my chest really hurts and I can feel that my throat is raw from coughing. Its a little productive (sorry TMI!) but feels as if it could do with being a lot more productive. Its worse when I lie down.
The thing is, I feel like I'm always at the doctors! I was there on friday with a growth on my underarm. I don't know whether its just a cold and so I should ride it out, or whether I should go.
Does anyone have any thoughts? If my asthma was controlled, I'd say it was just a cold and leave it. But I'm just not sure. I have a history of bronchitus, but its no where near as bad as that.
