I'm new to this forum and well, need to let off a bit of steam. To summarise my lot, I got a resp tract infection in Nov, started inhalers in Dec progressed to nebs at home, 60mgs pred (now on 7.mgs) and two different types of antibitioc plus seretide 500 twice a day and singulair. I got a right fright as I've had asthma since 19 and now 38 but haven't used an inhaler in years, so it has been awful. Last week I was finally starting to turn the corner and what hey- my little toddler son arrived home from creche with yet another cold which yes, you've guessed, I got! Now I'm back to chesty wheezy land. God is there any end to this? Please can someone out there give me some light at the end of the tunnel? I've been off sick from work since 2nd Dec. and keen to return to normal. I can't believe how long this has been going on. Am doing everything I possibly can to recover- taking probiotics, vit & min supplemental tonic, flaxseed oil, echinacea, eating and drinking really well, yoga breathing and started salt cave therapy two days ago.
