Excuse my ignorance but have only recently been diagnosed with asthma and just had a few inhalers thrown at me by a stressed out GP, so I know virtually nothing other than the inhalers work ( although the preventer left me so weak and tired had to stop using it ).
I`ve had two fairly scary attacks although probably by you long term sufferers standards they were probably mild. The first attack was after a mild cold during pollen season, managed to drag myself to the doctor`s fighting for breath only to be told to come back late afternoon, 8 hours later. The chemist was more sympathetic and helpful and equipped with a tub of Vic I spent my waiting time with my head in a bowl of steaming Vics.
The worst attack was in the high winds the other day it took my breath away and I was fighting to get back in the house for my reliever, luckily my wife came out to see what I was up to.
I`ve noticed since I`ve had asthma that I keep getting an overproduction of clear mucus is this usual?
