HI. I am symbicort 200/6 four puffs a day and bricanyl as and when. I've been having really strange feelings in my chest - slightly tight and heavy since Christmas. I have been to the doctor, had an ecg etc so I'm not asking the site for medical advice as I know that would be really dangerous. But... the doctor has upped my symbicort for a month and what I want to know is whether this heavy, tight feeling in my chest could really be my asthma getting worse - I'm just confused as my peak flow isn't changed. They've even checked my liver function and the doc can't find anything else - but my asthma symptoms have never changed before so I'm a bit in the dark. Any reflections on this kind of thing would be helpful but I do want to say again - I am under my GP's care and have had loads of tests, and am in touch with her regularly so I'm not looking for diagnoses and wouldn't encourage anyone to do that. Thanks
