I have been struggling to get control of my symptoms for over a year now with no luck (on a short course (hopefully) of Prednisolone at the moment) and after talking to my mum she pointed out that my symptoms have become out of control since just after starting my current job as a social worker. I find work really stressful (work in mental health) but I have always been someone who stresses about things. I have moved office twice, so it can't be the office environment, and I'm exploring other options of triggers I might not have thought of, but, I've gone from being on 125 seretide to seretide 500 and Pred and never been able to reduce the seretide back down when I've been feeling better.
I just wondered whether anyone else had stress as a trigger and whether it could possibly cause such an exacerbation? The Pred was starting to take effect and I was feeling better, but I had a horrendous day at work yesterday (and was very tense/crying/frustrated) and later in the evening my symptoms flared up again and haven't gone away. It may not be the stress but I'm just desperately trying to find the reason at the moment!
