I seem to get really tired sometimes and I'm not sure if its linked to my asthma. I get so tired that I can't be bothered to get up off the setee or talk (usually you can't shut me up!). Last night I was really tired and tearful, I slept well but when I woke up this morning it was like I hadn't slept at all. I had been coughing this morning a little bit but felt ok, when I went to take Sandie for a wee at work I came up the stairs and started coughing lots. I took my inhaler and about half an hour later I was fast asleep in the middle of a training session. Woke up feeling much more refreshed. Since then I've been more breathless when I've been walking round. I start a new tablet tomorrow thephylline which I've been prescribed by the consultant. i didn't want to take it tonight as I am on my own and the consultant said it might make me sick and after my reaction to erythrmycn I didn't want to risk it. I'm going to take one tomorrow before I start work and the second one when I get to my boyfriends tomorrow evening.
Do you think my tiredness could be asthma related or just overtiredness? I asked my asthma nurse before and she said that's not a symptom of asthma (although she's the woman who prescribed me the wrong inhalers that landed me in hospital the first time!) I get overtired anyway from my blindyness, having to try and look around all day when I can't see past the end of my nose is tiring. Its hard to know which is which.
