Well I am now into month 10 of the asthma being hell. I changed GP as my old GP was useless and the new one is so much better but I still seem to be seeing him every other week. I am so fed-up. I have been on 5 courses of prednisolone already this year which is 4 more than last year, been on anti-bioctics 4 times which is the same as last year and we still have 3 months left. I have had my medication changed 4 times already and I am constantly changing the dose of my inhalers from prescribed dose to double dose. I am on double dose again after only 7 days of being back down to my normal dose after a 14 day session on double dose. What more can I do. I am on step 2 again of my asthma action plan and if there is no improvement or I get any worse then it is doctors again on Friday.
I have a wedding to go to in 11 days and with the way I feel at the moment I wont be going. I have to be healthy for my children especially my baby as I am his career as he has epilepsy, incontinence issues, sensitive digestion track and learning difficulties in more than 1 area. I do get a little brake from being his career as he is know in nursery 3 hours 5 days a week but I am at my wits end. All I wont is to get the asthma controlled for more than 7 days. I have horrid chest pains, my ribs feel like they are on fire, I feel like I am so gunked up and the only time I feel any relief is for an hour after using the salbutamol.
Any idea;s on what I can do to get better control. I am on step 4 of the asthma treatment plan. I have to take 2x250mg Seretide twice a day, 400mg Salbutamol when needed, 10mg Montekulast at night and 20mg Cetrizine at night. The Seretide is oubled to 4x250mg twice a day. I am also taking 2x500mg Paracetamol and 2x50mg Codine
