I am suffering with my asthma at the moment. I have been on 40mg of steroids now for 10 days. Normally, by now, it would have improved but I seem to be getting different symptoms.
I am a brittle asthmatic. Normally, I have quite a loud wheeze but this time, I am just breathless and there is no wheeze. I don't feel too bad as long as I don't do anything, yet as soon as I start moving about and try to go out, I get really short of breath and worn out and feel absolutely exhausted.
I have been to the GP 3 times and the hospital twice in the past 10 days.
A&E let me come home on the condition I got an urgent appointment with my consultant. My GP sent him a letter, I emailed him and after various phone calls finally spoke to his secretary today who said he does want to see me urgently but his next slot is 22nd Sept!!!!
GP says there is nothing more they can do as I need to see the consultant.
Meanwhile, I feel so low being stuck at home and feel under pressure to return to work but am not sure I am up to it.
Is anyone else having similar symptoms, which are different to normal? I am wondering if it is this humid, muggy weather?
