  • I think you should go back to the docs if your chest is 'very tight', get an emergency appointment. Alice

  • Poor you. I agree with Alice that you should try to get in touch with your doctor or asthma nurse. My doctors always say to me that they'd rather I 'botherthem' over symptoms that turn out to be relatively mild and easily treated than that I leave things too late and end up bothering them as an inpatient for days or weeks!

    It's often easier to nip things in the bud if you treat aggressively right from the start than to get things under control once they get really, really bad.

    Hope you feel better soon. Let us know how you get on.

  • I agree nipping things in the bud is so much easier then letting things get out of control...if you get the chance pop and see docs today I am sure they don't mind.

  • got appt for 3 -30 tomorrow afternoon. seems a bit easier now but still very tight. will see what happens tomorrow xxx thank you for all your answers

  • went to docs yesterday had a chat with doctor she listened to my chest and said my chest is a bit crackly with just having pleurisy and still been on steroids but the tight feeling i have been having is weather related but if i get worse to go back straight away. today i feel a lot better thank goodness, thank you for your kind messages. xxxxx
