I'm due to go on a 9 hour flight in 6 weeks and I'm really scared about going. Last September I flew to Cyprus which is only 4 hours but all the way I had problems with my breathing - feeling really short of breath and bad crushing pains in my chest. I ended up taking my ventolin inhaler about every 10mins so I could breath!! (I dont have a neb) I've spoken to my asthma nurse and she has suggested taking a course of prednisolone a week before I go so my breathing is at its best.
Does anyone else have similar problems and how do you deal with it?
Thanks in advance
