I know there are a lot of people worse off than me but am starting to get very paranoid.
In 6 weeks, I've had 2 courses of prednisolone (7 and 5 days @ 40mg). Just finished the last today, and given anti-biotics, as have had a cold and am wheezing a bit. The GP couldn't hear any infection though. Am on seretide (100 3 times a day), singulair and too much ventolin.
I've had lots of different advice from GP's (never easy to see the same one twice!). One strategy did work: to take a couple of puffs of my usual preventer with the seretide. However, this came from a locum and the usual GP told me to stop.
Now I've finished the steroid tablets, am taking antibiotics that I'm not convinced I need and still have a wheeze. The GP has referred me to a chest clinic (he said he would anyhow) but this may take 4 weeks. He says he can do no more for me. I'm now waiting for it all to crash around me. Its not helping that stress is a trigger.
My asthma hasn't given me any issues for years and its getting a bit scary. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
