I've had asthma symptoms for 12 months now, but was only 'officially' diagnosed this summer. I've had a cold for the last 10 days which is pretty much gone now BUT its left me with a dreadful wheeze and morning and evening coughing fits and during the day too, to be honest
I always take my brown inhaler regularly morning and night and for the most part don't need to use my ventolin however over the last three/four days all i seem to be doing is reaching for my ventolin to relieve my symptons. A colleague told me I should have an Asthma 'nurse' at the doctors surgery so I called and asked them today - I can have an appointment - on the 4th January!!!!!! REALLY!!
Can anyone advise me on whether I can 'up' using my brown inhaler? will it help? will it do damage? or should i see a doctor? or use my ventolin until i feel better.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
