Ive had asthma all my life - I was growing out of it until I moved to another part of the country and it came back 10-fold. Ive managed to keep it controlled and am a competitive athlete.
I started with a dry cough last week so I took more Ventolin and continued as normal with my preventer. I went to my gp on Monday after my family nagged me all weekend, who said it was viral but 24 hours later I developed a chesty cough, headache, high temp, a cold, sore throat and ear ache. The cough is really nasty and I cant sleep or eat anything without violently coughing. Im taking both preventer and reliever and over the counter cough medicines but nothing is touching it. Ive had to stop training in my sport as if I get too hot, I violently cough too. Im getting very frustrated now and am starting to have feelings of shame like when I was a kid.
Any ideas on anything I can try?
