Just spoke with the AUK nurses, they suggested that my leg cramps on a night could be down to the LABA in Seretide. And my 'loss of power' and 'lack of air in lungs' after about 15mins of running, could be another asthma symptom. So along with the fact the Fostair has made my symptoms so much worse, I'm back off to the nurse next week.
The AUK nurse suggested
(A) separating the steroid and LABA, then reducing the LABA portion to reduce the cramps, but increasing the steroid to regain control even when exercising.
(B)Or trying without LABA.
(C)as A but try slightly less steroid and adding Intal for the EIA
Anyone have any experience of doing any of the above? Any other suggestions?
I know I keep going on but I dont want to stop running, but the GP seems not to care that I can't do it without breathing problems. As the AUK nurse said, your asthma should be controlled to a level where you carry on with normal activities without symptoms, if this includes running, you should have enough control to do it. OK, some people can't get enough control to do this, but there's more avenues to investigate for me yet!! Just frustrating that up until ~6 months ago even my EIA was controlled on the Seretide ;-(
