Hope this finds everyone well and having a good weekend?? Sorry if this is a long message.
Before i ask my question, i would like to say that i am not in any need of immediate mediacl attention...
This excerabation (sp??) started two weeks ago and i went to see my GP, we followed asthma plan and commenced steriods 30mg and regular ventolin for 5 days,off work, had hospital clinic at this time and they took bloods to check theophyllin levels to see if tabs could be increased. They were keen to see me in 2 weeks. Was not feeling much better last Monday, so got back in contact with GP (over the phone) and was told to continue pred for a further 5 days. Still was not feeling much better so went back to GP Thursday (saw different one) and they increased pred to 40mg for 7 days, anti biotics, advised to use lots of ventolin and sent for chest x-ray. Also chased my theophyllin levels from previous hospital appointment and could increase tabs in the morning. Another appointment booked for Thursday but i am sitting here at home alone and really not feeling any better, in fact at times have felt worse (not at this moment in time).
I am wondering whether i would be wasting GP time to go and see them tomorrow, not sure what they can do but worried about leaving it until Thursday. It would be a different GP again so do not want to confuse situation but do not want things to get any worse.
Just worried about wasting GP's time although other one did mention that if i was not winning then they wanted to see me sooner than Thursday....guess i may have answered own question.
Thanks in advance for listening
