I have suffered from asthma since I was little, but it was very mild and did not affect my life at all. For some reason this year it has become much worse- in fact I have been hospitalised twice in the last 6 weeks.
It seems to start with a cold and a sore throat and then it moves onto the chest and takes an age to shift. I am currently waiting to see a consultant and am taking all my medication- symbicort, ventolin, singulair, and antibiotics and prednisolone until the latest bout clears up.
The issue of having nebulisers at home for when this happens next time has been raised to try to prevent me from having to go into hospital. I have no idea what causes things to get so bad whenever I get a cold- allergy tests have also been suggested to try to see if Iâ€™m allergic to anything which I think is a good idea.
I understand you can buy nebulisersâ€¦ or would they be issued from the doctors/hospital? Would be grateful to hear from anyone who has been through anything similar, as I donâ€™t really no the procedure.
