asthma attack

asthma attack at work,

It had to happen on day and to day was the day and was really scary.

My asthma was bad before I went work but ended up having a attack

and really struggling and needed lots of reliever.

I was with my year 6 children and dinner time.

Alerted another staff member to be on hand if couldnt get it

under control.

6 puffs later and started to settle a little bit so carried on at work as

nearly time for home.

Im back home now and awaiting a return call from my asthma nurse.

Really puffed out still xx

Nurse rang be back and had to up my prednisalone again to a higher daily dose.

Hi Glynis, sorry youre not well at the moment.

It is always nasty when you suffer an attack. When you feel generaly as id you have managed to stave one off.

It may be this awful weather were having. I hope you feel better soon.

Regards, Howie


Thank you everyone xxx


Carnt believe another attack at work today. Think my chest infection and sore throat made it worse.Could hardly breath and chest that tight and constant pain between shoulder blades and pulling tight. Lots of reliever 8 puffs later of easyhaler 200 and started to settle and home time. Home resting again and hope antibs kick in soon.
