Not actually about asthma although the asthma is a reason it is a problem. I get from time to time kidney stones, since my asthma has taken a turn for the worse this is a problem as I can't use the powerful pain killers (Morphoine type things) I used to use cos in the dosage needed to have any effect will effect my breathing, smaller dosages don't come near to touching it. Like many I also can't take NSAIDS. This morning I am between posting roaming around the house trying desperatly to cope with the agony in my back. I am lucky in that they tend to be small and as a rule pass alone without the need for zapping. Am I missing something does anyone have ideas I can suggest to Drs who tend to scratch their heads, wack up vast amounts of fluid, make sympathetic noises and wait for it to work its way out. I am drinking lots of clear fluids and trying to keep my mind off it, but it is mind blowingly painful.
My cons for the kideny stones is happy for me to stay at home so long as I can bear the pain so I am not breaking any rules by trying to brave it out and unless i feel that I can get something useful out of a visit to the local costa I would rather be at home.
