I ended up in A&E last weekend, suffering from my first ever asthma attack at the ripe old age of 29.
I still feel terrible! My doctor has given me a hefty dose of steroids to take (in pill form), and I also now have two new inhalers. I've had about 14 hours sleep in the last week. I can't rest at night because I have to cough every 2 minutes to clear my lungs and the steroids are keeping me awake. My throat is red raw.
I have so many questions! Will this be a regular occurrence for me from now on, or will the medication stop things getting this serious again? How do I work out what triggers my asthma? Do things like steam cleaners or air purifiers help? Where should I go to get more help and advice? Are there any good books or websites you recommend?
Thanks for any advice!
