Hi sarah

Sorry you have been having problems, but if anyone can sort you out they will!

During your first appointment they will start from the beginning taking your history, any other family will asthma or allergies etc, they will do ling function, review your medication and symptoms, take blood etc. They may also talk about coming in for an addmission for their difficult asthma protocol, where you go into hospital for about 4 days, but that will depend on what they think and your individual case. Also take you meds with you, or a repeat prescription or something so they can see your meds.

Try not to worry, they are a lovely team and they listen to you! But it may take more than one appointment to sort you out!! lol!

Do you know who you are seeing?

I see Dr Menzies-Gow and Dr Polkey and they are lovely!

I wish you all the best and any questions do ask or PM me
