Hi , I have just been diagnosed with asthma , I had severe chest infection over new year since then had two lots of antibiotics and three lots of steroids , given inhaler of salbutamol to use 2 puffs x4 if needed or prn . Then given beclometasone as they decided from peak flows I have asthma . I have been to asthma clinic and seen nurse who went through medication and gave me another inhaler of serevent to use Ten mins before beclometasone . I want desperately to back to work but still get breathless and tight pains in chest and it like I got fur ball in throught don't know how else to describe it , luckily the coughing as settled down n not as wheezy but it took me nearly 8 weeks to get to this stage . I'm back at doctors tomorrow and don't know what else to say . Is this best I'm ever going to be . Thank you for reading this ! Jo
