I have a very silly question but would love an answer. I was diagnosed with asthma in the autumn and after a long time of trying to get it sorted I responded wonderfully to symbicort 200/6 twice in the morning and evening and bricanyl when i need it. Last time i saw the asthma nurse she suggested i try to reduce the symbicort to see whether i could use less (on the basis that its always good to use the minimum i need ). So, I've dropped to twice in the morning and once at night but... although my peak flow is just as good i keep having moments when i feel like i'm going to have an attack - though i don't. I can't work out if these happen when i remember i've dropped my dose, or vice versa! (I've never suffered from panic attacks etc.)
I know this isn't a diagnosis forum - and I'm not falling over and needing an ambulance - its just that I don't have enough experience of this to recognise what is going on. I keep feeling like I might have an attack any minute now - does that sound like anxiety to you guys or is that something that can happen with asthma?
i'd be really grateful for any help - I'm still trying to work out what is happening now i've got this whole new thing in my life!
