hi new to forum just wanted to ask if like myself can asthma always be there without having bad attack or trigger. i had really bad flu last christmas and ever since its been nearly weekly trip to docs , my main symptom seems to be the dreaded cough usually at night ,most nights wake breathless but not sure if this is due to mucus or if the breathlessness comes first , sorry i know that doesn`t really seem to make sense !at present waiting to see consultant and have started on steriod inhaler and reliever inhaler ,this after a course of steriod tablets which were great but after coming off them i find i am going backwards up nearly everynight coughing . have been told that i am using blue inhaler too often (3 to 6 times daily ) but if i don`t use it i find myself shallow breathing and trying not to talk to people is case i bring on coughing fit. does anyone have any advise on whether i should use it or not ?
