Hi, I am new to this site, although i have had asthma for many years the last few months have been horrendous.
I have been in and out of hospital three times and been on prednisilone since june. I was put on 60mg in hospital and now evertime i reduce down and stop i end up back on it, i am currently on 30mg.The consultant at hospital says i have something called brittle asthma, can anyone tell me what this means?
I feel constantly short of breath and seem to be coughing all the time, especially at night, so subsequently i am always tired as spend all night coughing!!
I am getting really fed up as havent manage to work properly for last six weeks and my asthma seems to be controllign evrything i do, which has never been the case in the past. Has anyone got any suggestions for what i can do?
