i have just got home from first appointment at the Brompton, i have come home feeling really deflated and utterly confused. any advice would be greatfully recieved.
Firstly i was meant to be seeing Dr Menzies Gow, but instead saw the respiratory nurse, who fired a hundred questions at me and some i just didnt know the answer to. she went through my list of meds and said that she felt some where no use at all, she also looked at lung function and said it was normal (i am actually feeling well today and have been for the last couple of weeks, i am on 30mg of pred and lost of meds) i dont think i got it accross exactly how bad it effects my life and i felt like she was questioning why i was there, i have had repeated admissions etc and not been of pred for months. she then went on and asked how i would feel if she said it wasnt asthma, well i kind of sat there and said well what is it then, i now feel like i am waisting there time and it is all in my head!!
she said that i need to go in for a week in april, and they will do loads of tests, i just completly confused by it all! can anyone offer me any advice?
thankyou in advance
