'Asthma and steroids ggrr

Well here goes, after having controlled asthma without an attack since 1970 plonk I had a real bad scare last week. First trip in an ambulance and first visit to A & E. Breathing like I had run 26 miles in four minutes. Blue turbo haler usless. Had a lovely cocktail of Ventolin and Atrovent. Now on 40mg of the foul tasting white things plus 500mg of amoxy. Forced to rest with pf down to 310 from 420. Cannot walk upstairs without puffing like an old billy goat. Unwatched DVD ready to go

Hey Glynis - I'm the same, Pred just isn't doing what it should, and Nellie is having a house-party on my chest. Have a nasty feeling it'll be back to the docs tomorrow, because I can't go on like this, just getting more tired every day.
