i have never had asthma before but recently had lots of chest infections and antiobitocs were not clearing it. i then got pneumonia and ended up in hospital after i couldnt even get from one room to another as i couldnt breathe (and i live in a cottage so no stairs). i now have blue inhaler and brown preventer. i have had a recent cold so after strong antibiotics cleared the pneumonia i am coughing and wheezy again, so going back to docs on monday as i dont think its under control again (i havent been properly disgnosed with asthma yet) i am 51 and i think this could be due to hormonal changes, i did mention this to doc, but he said he hadnt heard of that before - has anyone else?
i now cannot do any exercise at all, even though i used to be really fit, playing badminton and going to the gym 3 times a week, which is really sickening. will i ever get back to the way i was?
