I am new to the forum but not to asthma. I have had asthma since I was 13 and I am now 32. My asthma has been bad for the last 4 years and I have been under a doctor at my local hospital as they cannot find the right medication for me. I have tried all sorts of different medications. I am now on Flexitide through my neb and 8 x 5ml of preg for the last 3 months plus indigestion tablets, anti histamines, ventalin and aminophyline. As my asthma is not getting any better the doctor wants me to go into hospital for 5 day. I only really have attacks in the middle of night. Can anyone help? Have you gone into hospital for observation and felt fine when you come home, then had a bad attack once at home? Does anyone think this will help me?
I don't like hospitals anyway and my temp and heart rate goes up. Please any help would be great.
