I'm trying to find a way to describe what I mean by this! On the whole my asthma is mild and well controlled, but at times when I've kept a Peak Flow Diary, I never really see a lot of change in my scores unless I've got a URT infection.
However, sometimes when I feel wheezy, the wheeze seems to be at the top of my airway (feels like my throat and/or high in my chest) - and it doesn't seem to give me a low peak flow reading when this happens. When I take my inhaler, it feels like the drug has 'missed' the place I need it to work, because I often need to take a few puffs to feel a benefit.
I'm sure its not psychological, so why does this happen?
More importantly, has anyone else experienced this?
