Friday I had an appointment with the asthma nurse who gave me symbicort because my peak flow was only 300 and it was apparent that Ventolin wasn't enough. My breathing last night and today has been poor and my chest and upper back really hurts so I made an emergency appointment with a doctor (which was advised from the asthma nurse if I got worse or if the symbicort didn't help).
I have a long history of mental health problems so it's no surprise that the Dr automatically presumes it's in my head. She listened to my chest which was clear but my pulse was high and I had the shakes (no surprise as I couldn't breath). She told me that she had spoke to my regular Dr and that it is probably best I make an appointment with her as she wants to see me, again applying my mental health needs reviewing then told me to go home and tell myself that ""I am fine""!
I'm extremely annoyed and embarrassed regarding what she thinks. I'm still struggling with my breathing and am in a lot of pain and I know this isn't just in my head!
i'm sorry i just needed to vent.
