Hi everyone, was just wondering if any of you had experienced this before as I have only been diagnosed with asthma for a year. 8 weeks ago I had a severe asthma attack requiring several nebs and eventual hospitalisation on O2, steroids and antihistamines as it was complicated by exposure to an another allergen that caused anaphylactoid-like reaction.
I had coughed severely for days and it took another week despite very high dose of pred. at the time I had stabbing pains on left side of ribs and a feeling like my lungs were being squashed and caught by my rib cage. Was told at the time it was prob intercostal strain from all the coughing but 8 weeks on and despite my asthma and allergic reaction to be under control am still experiencing ribs pain and they are popping or jumping occasionally. Was beginning to wonder if this was normal and would just take longer to heal. Could any of you help please?
