Hi all I had been ill for a few months and was originally diagnosed with a chest infection, given antibiotics by my gp but it didn't help. Next time I was given prednisolone and a ventolin inhaler, with antibiotics again before finding out I had asthma after a few checks by gp and practitioner nurse. Now have a shiny new red inhaler, blue one and pred tabs to see how i go. Cant sleep as just had an attack, i seem to be getting an awful cough with every attack and from what i can see this is normal. Was shocked i had asthma but reading posts on here the last few days has really helped. Just wanted to post to say hello and thanks.
