hi Im not sure how to phrase this really, but I was wondering whether being sleep deprived can make asthma worse? I used to be able to cope with 4-6 hours sleep but recently I have been very busy and I havent been able to get to sleep until 12.30-1.30am and then I get up at around 6.30am for the last week or so. Ive noticed Ive become more wheezy than usual and I nearly required admission today. I was admitted to ITU about 2 months ago and it just seems I really appreciate my sleep more lol since. Im symptomatic quite severely at night, my mum can hear me wheezily sleeping and wakes me up around 6/7 times to give me salbutamol. Which doesnt really help and Im getting through 2-3 salbutamol inhalers per week.
So yeah just wondering can lack of sleep make asthma worse? :s
