Having just been in costa again which included a stay in itu on a vent this is something that has been playing on my mind and wanted to know if anyone had any experience or advice for me.
Up until last year my attacks were always the same -gradual deterioration until home meds were no longer effective or it wasnt safe to stay at home but in 3 out of the 4 most recent admissions i have had theese have been very different and in someways more scary. I have had 2 or 3 days of going downhill a little with no obvious response to increased meds i then go into a very sudden attack and deteriorate very quickly, with each of these i have ended up on a vent. I have been diagnosed a type 1 brittle by RBH and from what my con has said after talking to RBH is that i can now add type 2 onto that as well! Im not happy.
How do those who have these sudden attacks cope esp if you have kids to deal with? What causes the change in my asthma?
Sorry for the questions but im feeling rather scared and vulnerable atm.
