I have been struggling to get my Asthma under control since being diagnosed back in January. My diagnosis only came about after being taken to hospital after having breating difficulties for a week. I was put on Prednisolone (30mg) at the hosipital and was on them for a few weeks. Since coming off them it has been getting worse and worse with me having to take my reliever inhaler several times a day to try and prevent an attack. My normal medication is Seretide 250 which I'm meant to take twice a day, 2 puffs each time (doesn't do a lot to be honest). I recently also got put onto Singulair (10mg I think, once a day) to try and help with allergies. Still my asthma is getting worse and I'm struggling to do normal things like walk to work etc. without attack symptons (tight chest, struggle to breath etc). A couple of weeks ago I got put back on Prednisolone (30mg) for 5 days to see if it would help - it did but as soon as I stopped the course my asthma got worse again and not getting any better.
Does anyone else have this trouble with, what seems to be, uncontrollable asthma? It's getting annoying now and embarrasing when I can't do normal things without getting out of breath. I have another doctors appointment tomorrow morning to see how the course of prednisolone went. It's so frustrating that when ever it seems to be getting under control it just gets worse again. I'm suitably fed up!!!
