Help I feel totally overwhelmed! have had chest infection for 4-6 weeks (kept coming back) and last sun morning coughed and vomited and sort of went into spasm, couldnt breath - got ambulance to A&E who said chest infection may have brought on asthma (I am 50 in march and never had so much of a wheeze, cough or anything before although i have eczema which I know is linked). I had 3 nebs (been reading the forum and picked up the speak already!!) in A&E and given prednisalone, upped antibiotics and blue inhaler and sent home. have now been off work for 2 weeks - back to gp today and got a brown (preventer) inhaler - i am still coughing, should I be using blue one regularly during day or just in bad coughing fits - am starting brown one tonight and tomorrow am, finish pred tomorrow - the nights are awful, cant sleep for cough and am panicking as I dont want another episode like sunday I was PETRIFIED. Also getting a lot of mucus in my throat at night/morning and it makes me feel sick and cough. I have found this website today and learnt more in 2 hours than the drs told me so thanks everybody for that but does the panicking stop, I feel like I'm lost, and nothing is going to be the same. Help.
