Hi, Iâ€™m also new to Asthma UK and know Iâ€™ve made the right choice in registering. Iâ€™m a 32 yr old female living in London. Iâ€™ve had the â€œJOYâ€ of being asthmatic since I was about 4 years old and have been unable to shift it. During these past few days of hot weather I also have had trouble sleeping as I get hot, sweaty and tight chested during the night, will take 2 puffs of my salbutamol and the beclomatezone and try to go back to sleep. Last night was the worst Iâ€™ve ever been this year as I woke about 3 times and took my inhaler. It started raining very heavy around 5am, I eventually managed to go back to sleep. Its still humid outside so by the time Iâ€™d done my 15 min walk from the train station into work sweat was pouring from me, I could hardly talk for shortness of breath and my chest was extremely tight. Its now almost 11.30 and my chest is still tight and Iâ€™ve started coughing. Iâ€™m sat here at work feeling very sorry for myself and all I wanna do is go home and lie down.
Whoever invented Asthma should be shot!
Iâ€™m sorry I rambled on for so long, just had to get this off my wheezy chest - lol
