I m new to Asthma after being diagnosed in January this year, I originally went to the Doctors with a bad cough and was given several courses of antibiotics which didnt work, I was told it was fine to go on holiday to Cyprus and was given a bottle of strong painkillers to help me sleep!!!! Three days into my holiday IU was in hospital, I was thre fro three days then let out, back in again two days later on nebs and inhalers and told I cant fly home unless I stop coughing!!
i got home and saw my GP who told me its not Asthma but COPD. After seeing aa specailst at the local hospital it was finally diagnosed as asthma, I think I am now getting it ubder control, what I want to know is does it stay the same if you keep taking the meds ot does it get worse over the years, Im determined to not let this stop me going the gym etc but there have been days when I really stuggle to excersize like I used to.
I believe my asthma isnt severe but I found it really frightening in hospital in a foreign country when you cant breath.
