Just wondering as above, I had what A & E classed as a severe asthma attack two
weeks ago, I had the swine flue jab then developed a cold, then chest infection and
ended up being quite poorly in A & E they did the usual blood gases and nebuliser etc gave me
steroid tablets etc taken them for 5 days, my breathing has definately improved I can walk and talk at the same time now.. Which I couldnt do last week, but I still feel really drained and have no energy, I still get out of breath really easily and im a far cry from my normal self, I have finished
the antibiotics and taken all the steriods, I have increased my becotide to two puffs 4 x per day, but im still useing my ventolin at least 4/5 times per day. I have gone from having well controlled asthma to having no control .... all in the space of a few weeks.. My doc just sayes to carry on what Im doing and things will get back to 'normal'
Is this a normal reaction ? how long does it normally take to get back to where you started from?
Thank you for any help x
