It's been a while since I posted here. Hope everyone's doing ok. My asthma's not been too bad. Been working hard with my GP and think I've pretty much got my medication sorted. However there's something I need advice on, and I'm sure you knowledgeable people out there will be able to help.
I'm going for my 3-monthly asthma review tomorrow, and want to be armed with some info. My asthma is pretty much controlled, however I find that if I do need to puff on my Ventolin, or get a little tight chested, it takes ages to clear the sticky mucus. It just keeps on comin'!
I also find that if I eat something like fish and chips (very rarely) I get very tight chested and the mucus starts again. Was interested to read a previous thread about fatty foods, so that figures. I always seem to be coughing to clear mucus on a day to day basis which is very irritating and annoying. People often comment they can hear me long beforre they can see me!
I know from reading the boards that there is medication to help with this, and would maybe like to suggest it to my doc. What's it called, and has anyone had any experience of using it? Good or bad?
Thanks for reading and I look forward to reading your advice.
