I started Symbicort 200/6 2 puffs daily on Thursday evening, and since then my chest seems to have got a bit worse. I can still do things normally (though walking has slowed down) and talk, sing etc but reliever is not working and chest does feel tight.
I just rang the asthma nurses on here for advice as I wasn't sure what I should be doing given symptoms aren't too bad but reliever doesn't work. She said if my PF drops to half ie 320 or I wake at night with symptoms I need to be seen urgently (think I would be gasping well before it reaches 320 tbh), but meanwhile should possibly ring surgery and ask dr or asthma nurse about doubling Symbicort (i said if I went to see GP he would just tell me to wait for the Symbicort to work and she said I did need to give it time).
However, has just occurred to me that this all started after I began taking the Symbicort. Am I completely paranoid and it's just a coincidence or has anyone else found this happening?
