So now I've been diagnosed (yay!) I'm confused again!
How long should I wait for the montelukast to keep doing its job? It's definitely working and so is the Ventolin now (it didn't before) and my PF went right up then down a little.
However, I seem to need quite a lot of reliever, especially at night. I wouldn't call what I have now proper control, but it's definitely better than I was without any medication. I'm just not sure how long to leave it before going back to GP. I do have a resp physio appt on Monday but that's supposed to be for 'breathing pattern disorder' - she doesn't know about the asthma because my cons said I don't have it.
Obviously will be telling physio (eek, wonder how she will react to whole 'cons said no GP said yes' thing). But not sure when I should be pestering GP - want to let the medication do its work before I go back and moan at him, but equally would like to be more controlled - however after going uncontrolled for so long I have no sense of how long I need to allow for things to settle down!
