So hopefully this won't descend into a rant or a moan as I am trying not to do too much of that! Also hope this isn't against forum rules, but I am not after medical advice, more strategy advice.
I am just a bit stuck about what to do, on a practical level. My lungs are not happy and I have really been hitting the blue in the last few days/week but it doesn't help that much. It's also been affecting my sleep pretty much every night; I keep on waking up during the night, but not enough to realise I need my inhaler. My walking speed also seems to have slowed down a little though not to the level I was once at.
I have contemplated OOH but not sure what they could do for me other than tell me my PF is fine and I'm not wheezing (actually I may be wheezing for once but pretty sure if I am it will magically disappear in the presence of a doctor lol)
Normally this seems to be the stage where you go to your GP, tell them you're not properly controlled and they possibly give you some pred, but GP is stumped and pred doesn't work. Next stop is chest clinic but probably not for a while if last time is anything to go on.
Sorry for going over the same ground again and again but just wondering if anyone has any practical solutions to this one, for now and while I wait for chest clinic! I'd ring the AUK nurses as they are generally very helpful about this sort of thing, but I won't be able to really until probably next Thursday as I am very busy on Monday, if I can get through it, and it is pretty impossible to have a private conversation anywhere at work unless you go outside with the smokers!
Anyway thanks for reading if you've got this far and sorry for being a bit of a stuck record.
