EDIT sorry for moan, feel free to ignore! I was in a moaning argghh my ribs hrt sort of mood when posting, maybe I should have waited.
Feel a little like I am back to square one. I know I'm not, as I can walk around more quickly than before I was on the medication and not get completely knackered. Plus I now know I have asthma which helps, and it will be much harder to dismiss me. And as ever, reading posts on here and talking to people reminds me it could be so much worse.
However, I am feeling a bit stuck. My asthma is acting up for no good reason that I can see, unless it's missing 5 days of Intal due to various errors on my and surgery's part, plus one day of Montelukast which led to a rather nasty day last Friday with copious amounts of blue and nearly ringing OOH, but then I figured they wouldn't be able to do anything and I could still speak in whole sentences etc. So that could be having a knock-on effect (hope so, means it should stabilise soon) but I have had disturbed nights from asthma for quite a few nights now including a bad one on Friday when I kept waking up (and normally I have a surprising ability to get to sleep even when I think I might not be able to). Plus the last couple of days I have been really hitting the blue and my ribs are letting me know that lungs aren't happy!
Never quite gets to the point though where I feel it's worth getting help. Can't go back to GP, he is sympathetic but says he is stumped and will have to wait for chest clinic (which will be ages, I haven't even seen the choose and book form yet and it's been a couple of weeks, not really sure what's going on there...he said he was chasing the paperwork, and it will be ages even once I have sorted the appt). he can't even give me pred as it doesn't work.
Just feel a bit like I am in the twilight zone of feeling rather rubbish but not enough for anyone to do anything.
Anyway really sorry for rather self-pitying and long rant! It is better than before, I'm more able to get on with my life and I can work so I know I'm luckier than many, my life is not ruled by Costa. Still, I would like some answers and to stop being so weird so chest clinics don't look at me like a hypochondriac freak.
