Just thought i'd pop a message and say hi. I'm 32 and have been asthmatic since i was about 3, as a child i was always in and out of that place they call hospital. We moved up north and my asthma seemed to improve and i managed to get some control with only 1 or 2 flare ups a year requiring antibiotics and steroids.
I've just finished (yesterday) my second course of steroids and antibiotics in the last month. My inhalers have been increased in the last month from seretide 125, to seretide 250 and now (since friday) seretide 500, i've also just been started on montelukast, i'm really hoping that this does the trick, as 10 days ago i felt the same then had a relapse. Its also my 4th big exhasterbation since dec 2010 and work are getting at me for having so much time off, grrrr.
It doesn't take much of a drop in my pf to make me feel unwell, i can usually blow around 480, however at 430 i'm tight and wheezy and by 400 needing steroids, even after this course my best this morning was 450.
Sorry for such a long first post, just thought i'd try and fit as much in as i could whilst saying hi
