Hi everyone, I am a new asthma sufferer. Got really wheezy during the school hols, went to the doctor and was given a ventolin inhaler and told to come back in 3 or 4 weeks if I still had the symptoms. I went back to the dr today as my inhaler ran out last night and I ended up sleeping upright on the sofa. Have had to use the inhaler every day since I got it.
So, he has now given me 2 ventolin inhalers and I have to go to the hospital for a spirometry test and chest x ray before they will give me a different inhaler.
So, what I was wondering was if there is a portable type spacer? I prefer to use one but its too big to carry round and I hate the taste in my mouth.
