Hi, Just joined after seeing an item on local news. I was diagnosed with asthma about 13 years ago. I'd often had spells of coughing especially when speaking on the phone as I worked in an office before then. Change of job, working with kids and became really ill with worst cough ever. Was diagnosed with chest infection and got various antibiotics, which didn't work & ended up with pneumonia, just before Christmas too. Signed off work & went back after Christmas. About 4 weeks later back in hospital and again a few months later. Haven't been admitted since fortunately. However, my asthma is quite active & has been for some time. I've had various changes of inhaler & am now on a red one, which is helping a bit. WIndy weather makes me worse. Living in the northeast, we get lots of windy weather.
Anyway, should I be worried about this continuing or should I ask for a second opinion. None of my recent asthma checks have involved seeing a GP. Peak flow is about 400 which for me is good. I don't wheeze but boy do I cough.
Thanks for listening anyway.
