I wanted to ask a few questions about my asthma as I don't know anyone with the condition and would like some advice before I go bothering my doctor.
I was diagnosed this asthma in June after getting the all-clear from a chest x-ray. I am taking the Clenil Modulite 100 twice a day along with Ventolin to use as and when. I've been on this now for two months and in my mind, my symptoms are getting worse (but are probably exacerbated by anxiety). My chest is really tight today and my breathing shallow. My questions:
1. Can asthma just keep getting worse and worse or will it plateau at some point?
2. Have I been on my new mediation long enough to justify asking my doctor to change it?
3. I'm three stone overweight because I eat too much of the wrong food and don't exercise. I am starting the address my eating problem but am too scared to exercise with my chest being like this. I'm just wondering if anyone else here who has lost weight has seen an improvement in their asthma?
4. Can humid weather make asthma worse?
Thanks for reading my post
