Been to asthma nurse twice and doc, on 3 puffs symbicort AM & PM and 4 puffs ventolin during the day and usually night, been given predisolone and clarithymicin - as I may have an infection. But now also suffering from intermittent ear ache. I feel generally rubbish and very lethargic and doc now threating hospital, says poss pneumonia, feel like I have totally given into asthma which isn't like me, had 9 colds already this year and battled through. Anyone ever been like this before. It's been going on for over a fortnight! Thanks for any input.
