So i've been feeling a bit nasty today, nelly on the chest, coughing up mucus the usual.
yet when i checked my peak flow it was 440 which is basically my personal best.
It confused me that my lungs could apparently be so good, when i feel like im struggling. Even walking up and downstairs today is leaving me out of breath.
if it keeps on like this i will go to the doctors, problem is they sometimes seems to think peak flow scores are golden. (though one of them believes i should be able to reach 500..)
anyway was wondering if anyone else got good peak flows when they felt bad?
also kind of unconnected but last time i went to the docs, he measured oxygen and heart rate and the heart rate was 120. so i was wondering about if a) 120 was kind of bad for a 17 yr old? b) it could be explained by my asthma? Doc wasnt very clear and just asked if id been overdoing it on the reliever. ( i'd taken two puffs only that day a few hours before the measurement so i said no.)
anyway any replies appreciated,
