Hi there. I posted a while back because I'd been signed off for 3 weeks because of stress/asthma.
My 3 weeks off made a big difference and was just resorting to ventolin now and then as opposed to every day.
I'd only been back at work for a few weeks when they said they were making me redundant. I've been there less than a year and my asthma's not really bad so it's not like it's covered by law. I'm on seretide and ventolin, nothing more.
When I get really stressed I can't breathe, for days. It's the whole cough, gasping, lungs full of dust feeling. The last few days have been hellish again - am running out of blue inhalers!
Should I be looking at this kind of thing as a panic attack or is it asthma? It only goes away if I have 4 or 5 puffs, but then it stays away for a few hours.
