Blood Test and Doctors Appointments

I have painful arms and I am buising a lot more than I have ever done before. So I went to see the doctor on the 22nd July and he recommended that I had a blood test, so on the 29th July I had a full blood test to check my bloods were all ok. My bloods came back as normal.

I have been having to use my blue inhaler more just lately as I have had a tight chest and have also being feeling short of breath. I have being under a lot of stress just lately and this has not helped my asthma. The weather is not helping much as one mintue it is hot and the next it is raining.

The doctor thinks it maybe my medication that I am on currantly which are as follows: Salbutamol Breath - Actuated Inhaler, Seretide 250 Inhaler, Montelukast Sodium Tablets 10mg, Loratadine Tablets 10mg, Mometasone Furoate Nasal Spray, Sodium Cromoglicate Eye Drops When my peak flow is below 300 I start 40mg of Prednislone. I also take Epilim Chorno 200mg and 500mg. He has said about a medication review and maybe changing my asthma medication.

I do not know what other asthma medication he is thinking of trying on me. I really like seretide because it is a combined inhaler. I don't know if there are any others like these?

I have not booked a medication review as yet but will do so in the next couple of weeks.
