Last friday started morning started with just a slight sore throat but by lunchtime it was really bad and I was unable to eat lunch and only had a very small dinner. Saturday morning my throat was not so sore, but by saturday evening I had lost my voice have started to get it back now after taking cough medicine and using a throat spray.
But now i have got a really chesty cough which has turned into chest infection. I have been finding that I have a really bad night time cough which is affecting my asthma and my sleep. The doctor said I sound very tight and i sounded very wheezy. She said I should start my prednislone and she also pre scripted some antibiotics Clarithromycin 500mg twice daily for seven days. She said if I am feeling no better than to go back.
I do have my own nebulizer but I have no nebules left, I used my nebulizer when I had a bad chest infection and it really helped. I don't know if the doctor will give me the nebules as I have be told before
that I can take ten puffs of my salbutamol and that is the same as the nebules,but I am unsure about this! I think the nebulizer is better. So I am unsure what to do about this?
Salbutamol Breath - Actuated Inhaler, Seretide 250 Inhaler, Montelukast Sodium Tablets 10mg, Loratadine Tablets 10mg, Mometasone Furoate Nasal Spray, Sodium Cromoglicate Eye Drops When my peak flow is below 300 I start 40mg of Prednislone.
Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to help my asthma, as it is affecting my sleep and mood? I have no energy at the moment.
Sorry for such a long post
