Went to alton towers yesterday, all was fine apart from slight cough on rollercoasters, chest had been best itd been in what felt like forever. Went on a rollercoaster about 430ish, & everything went massively downhill from there, apparently chest doesn't like 0-60mph in 2 seconds. Lol. Ended up coughing full way round it, was wheezing, SOB, tight in chest, mucus with cough, mum said I'd gone really pale & finger nails had gone purple , took about 16 doses of salbutamol(sp?) To sort it out at once , & about 8 afterwards spaced out. Had to use inhaler a couple of times in the car (was in it about 2hrs home), & everything was fine when I got in & went to bed. Went to bed, fell asleep pretty much straight away, woke up every hour or thereabouts with SOB & chest tightness, a few doses of salbuatamol fixed it up enough to be able to sleep. Got tightness across my shoulderblades at the minute but no other symptoms apart from that. Have to see gp tomorrow (friday) to get tapered back off pred, but not sure if its worth bringing up with not having many symptoms now I'm awake. Sorry about the rambliness of the thread & length of it. Would it be worth bringing it up or waiting & seeing how it goes?
