Yesterday my chest was very bad, tightness, coughing etc. Then around 4 o'clock after chatting to visiting inlaws I found myself shallow breathing and struggling, with the sensatipn of drifting away. Luckily my husband was sitting next to me and noticed me struggling and quickly put me on the nebuliser. Chest been rubbish since before Christmas tapered off Pred down to maintwnance dose of 10 mgs. Am thinking about phoning the Resp Nurse or going to see GP. Has anyone else had the shallow breathing, drifting off symptom. Had happened many times before and did mention it to my Consultant. Or could I be allergic the in-laws who think it's just asthma and why isn't there a cure, lol!.
