I have had many admissions this year for asthma and another recent one, finally got discharged yesterday.
i am hoping somone can help me with something that is really bugging me.
whilst in hospital although i felt much better, my peak flows were not really improving and eventually they decided out of the blue to a lung function test, anyway i had allready had ventolin and atrovent nebs about an hour before and of course all normal asthma medication for that day. anyway had the test and the person said it was completely normal but peak flow was about half of normal. no other explanation was given
so my question is how much would the ventolin and atrovent nebs etc of afffected the test?
does this mean i am actually going mad and that i dont have asthma?
i just feel like i am going mad with it all as i have been so unwell the last few weeks, i am not sure how the test could be normal.
any answers would be gratefully recieved.
just another quick thing does anyone know if your periods can affect your asthma as the last two admissions have seemed to be about two days before my period and then things seem to settle a few days after, i just wondered if this can have an affect. i am not sure it explains everything as have had attacks at other times as well, i guess i am just looking for some reason!!!
i am sorry to have so many questions but get very frustrated by it all at the moment as know one seems to know how to make it any better and i feel like i am doing everything i am told to do but nothing changes.
any advice greatly recieved
