This is further to my post earlier about the Spiriva inhaler really.
I've spent the evening stewing over the consultant telling me we are running out of treatment options and feeling really angry and upset and.....quite frankly.....scared.
I've had a look at the BNF treatment steps and it would appear that from what the consultant is putting me on and suggesting for next moves I am on step 4 and looking step 5 in the face.
I know there are people on here with really severe asthma who are on a lot of treatment and would really value some advice on how to cope with this ramping up of my asthma.
Being honest I have seen a rapid deterioration and increasing loss of what was good control over the past 8-9 months and the treatments don't seem to agree with me - to the point that even for the slightly better control I can't tolerate them.
How do you come to terms with this and can anyone suggest some treatments I might be able to take? I have tried Theophyllin which gave extreme headaches and Singulair which kind of sent me off my head with the vivid dreams and sleep disturbances.
Any ideas or words of calming wisdom for me anyone?
