Hi there. Recently developed asthma (or so my GP says). Came as a bit of a bolt out of the blue. One day I'm fine, next I couldn't get up stairs without going dizzy and breathless. I have had an annoying night cough for ages before that which I always put down to being post viral. When I first saw my GP my PEFR was 250. I've been put on inhalers, had a CXR, ECG and blood tests which were all normal.
Last week I saw my GP and managed a 440 PEFR. He said, ""well it's probably asthma, the asthma nurse will see you in about 6 months"". It felt as if once I reached my predicted PEFR his attitude was 'job done'. I still get symptoms most days and at night - is that normal? I'm trying to build up my activity levels again as before all this I was a very fit hiker and out in the hills most weekends.
Should I just wait to see the nurse or should I be changing my GP?
Thanks in advance for any replies
