Having been diagnosed with asthma last Autumn (main symptom is coughing) and averaging a PF of 420 (apparently my 'ideal' is 500) my GP has tried me on various inhalers, two of which have recently made me tremble/shake a lot. I've gone from Becotide alone to Becotide & Serevent to Symbicort and back again.
Serevent gave me cramp, so the nurse put me on Symbicort. This made me feel very odd; uncharacteristically anxious and shaky so my GP recommended a 2 week 'rest' of Becotide only before re-introducing Serevent. Now I'm getting more cramps than before and pretty much constantly trembling hands.
My first question is whether I should expect trembling and cramps as a side-effect of most preventative inhalers, or whether there are some that don't have this side-effect?
Secondly, ought I expect my PF to have risen, now that I'm on daily inhalers? I'm not sure it's improved in the 6-7 months since I was diagnosed and so wonder whether daily drugs are in fact doing me much good at all...
