I swear I've asked this before but I went looking for it and can't find the post or the answer so asking again...
Cons wants me to monitor PFs till I see him again in 6 weeks, in the hope that they might tell him something about what my asthma is doing. (Objectively that is - I can tell him otherwise!). He wants morning and evening before inhalers and any time it really feels like it's going down the tube.
This is all fine, and the morning one is no problem (though it does vary in time as I don't get up at the same time every day). It's the evening one - my asthma tends to kick off in the evening, so I can't do it last thing because by the time I go to bed I've generally had several puffs of reliever. So thinking early evening, maybe 6 or 7, but depending on the day quite often that's also not so long after an inhaler dose. Since starting doing the readings, even with asthma not so bad for me, I've often found myself really wanting my inhaler(s) but hanging on till early evening - which is not pleasant and I can't believe he meant me to do that. Plus I may well not be at home in the early evening.
Any ideas? Should I try to pick on a time and more or less stick to it and make a note that I've had inhalers? Take PF meter out with me? I have a feeling this shouldn't be that hard but I can't seem to get a clear time without inhaler use except when i wake up (and even that wouldn't always be except I'm never awake enough to take my inhaler even if I get SOB at night).
