Hi I have just discovered this forum after suffering badly with my asthma for the last few months.
I have been asthmatic since I was 2 years old now 41. I started taking symbicort 200/6 about 8 years ago 2 puffs morning and night and this worked really well for me until the last few months. I seem to be getting very breathless 3 or 4 days every week and using my reliever ventolin doesn't seem to make a difference. I went to the doctor the other day and she prescribed singulair so I guess I will give that a try. I have also noticed that when I wake in the morning these days my nose is totally blocked almost as if I have a cold but I don't - is this related to the asthma in anyway?. Any adivce or info would be greatly appreciated.
