When I was growing up I used to always get out of breatrh very easily & they put it down to being unfit although I went swimming every week. When I was doing my GCSE's at school we did an experiment in biology to determine the relationship between heartbeat & exercise, this was my first asthma attack. I went to the doctors who did a peak flow & got 125 so they put me on the blue bricanyl turbohaler, which I would take when my chest feels tight & I feel the other symptoms. Recently my asthma has worsened & I have no been put on the purple accuhaler twice a day (am & pm) & the blue bricanyl turbohaler as needed. I have some questions though:
1) Should the purple accuhaler give you a sore throat?
2) What is the correct procedure for using it as I am registered blind & cannot see the small print idiot sheet?
3) I recently had a peak flow of 250 (I'm 5 foot 8 inches tall) but my family claim that I am not asthmatic even though the doctors at my GP's think so as well as the asthma nurse, should I listen to my family?
