Hi everyone, I'm quite new to asthma,and am on a preventative diskus inhaler. This morning, I woke with a slight shortness of breath feeling and a slightly tight chest. The attack wasn't that bad, but I used my ventolin with a spacer 4 times, but I still had to wait about half an hour before the attack subsided. My inhalers have never been that useful in providing me with relief, no matter how bad the attack has been (and ive had 2 or 3 nasty ones). Has anyone else found this? It's horrible. I never seem to get proper relief, I just have to wait for it to 'run it's course'.
