I've just come back from the GP and was wondering what others' experience has been in a similar situation to mine:
i have what i call 'reactive' asthma, in that i only suffer from it whenever i catch the flu (or a severe cold!)
this past week i have had such a bad cough, it hurts so much and my insides feel so drrrryy, no matter how much liquid i take in, and ive never experienced an episode of asthma that's left my lungs so inflamed, sore and dry
when i went to the GP he just said 'keep taking your inhalers' and also that this could take up to 6 weeks to clear up??
i cannot afford to take off any more time from work, but when you spend all night coughing hard, sleep comes 2nd, which makes it very tempting to call in sick during the day!
So, was the GP right in his advice?
also, anyone have any non-medical things that can help with the dryness/sore lungs as i do plan to take the ventolin and becodtide (not much help they seem to be at the moment....)
thanking you please!
