Made it to asthma nurse this morning, got the 'ooo theres no appointments till wednesday' until I mentioned it was my asthma and been struggling over the weekend, and hey presto 'oh it looks like theres a cancellation this morning'!
Anyway nurse not much use, said I'm complicated and she didnt know what to do. (i didn't think I was that much of a pain, just 'non-standard') Did I want to start oxis again, explined it gave me reflux and meant taking more medication to stop this so I'd rather not. She got the doc to check chest, no infection and good air entry, but reduced PF, I was still symptomatic although I did explain I'd already had 6 puffs of ventolin before leaving the house. Anyway got to double my already doubled flixotide to 4 puffs twice a day for a week, then reduce. So we'll see how I get on, bit disappointed because last time I had a flare up like this i was given steroids which worked a treat. Also frustrated seen as for the last 3 months I've hardly known I was asthmatic, then this.
How soon would I see an improvement by doubling the flixotide? Also if I'm symptomatic but air entry is good, what does this mean? Does it mean its all in my head?
Meanwhile, gobbling up blue inhalers like theres no tomorrow even while sofa surfing!!
