I was admitted for severe recurrent asthma attacks at the intensive care unit for two weeks. After my discharge a week ago, i've been wheezy, having episodes of breathlessness on the least exertion and peak flow rate of 220l/min.(normally 470l/min) I've been getting nocturnal attacks that responds poorly to my reliever medications.
I'm currently on 2 puffs of Symbicort 200/6 four times daily as maintenance and 2-4 puffs as reliever therapy plus 4mg salbutamol tabs and 20mg Pred 3 times daily. Also on Salbutamol nebs PRN.
I've been sweating at night, having severe headaches, palpitaions, pain and numbness in my feet. Also bedridden from yesterday and grown puffy.
Does it normally happen that way when one is on these drugs or i'm the only one feeling this way? What is the best thing for me to do now cos I'm worried about how i feel now.
Please anyone's advice is welcomed.
