I've been struggling for a few weeks. As a last attempt I was given another short burst of prednisolone last week. While on it, I got a cold and things started to go downhill. I saw a locum who said she couldn't hear an infection (as had a number of other doctors in the previous weeks) but gave me antibiotics anyway, mostly because I was still wheezing.
After 4 days, the breathlessness has now eased off a lot. I nearly had an unbroken sleep last night and am a lot less shaky than I've been in weeks (have kept to my over-dependent ventolin routine today so its not due to that). My chest feels a lot more stable and my peak flow has improved noticably.
This seems very strange to me, is it?
