Getting over an admission and chest infection... feel like I have been knocked for 6, coughing, wheezy and absolutely shattered. I think it is the time of year at the moment

you are not alone! Had a chest infection (anti-b's) and steroids to calm the asthma had a week off work change of inhaler..(work getting fed up with me and boyfriend says I need to calm down a bit!!?) back to work last week, had the flu jab tuesday, cold by weds now it's gone to my chest and I'm wheezing again! Maybe I just need to stay calm that will make it all go away ;-) Hope you feel better soon...hope we all do.

Mine's been bad this winter too. I can't leave the house without having an attack, and even mundane things like showering have been triggering attacks.

Hope things improve for everyone soon xx

Hi,

Yes im going through rough patch, get breathless just going upstairs. Had sore throat and painfull down sides. Finished antibiotics but on prednisolone tabs. I honestly believe its the cold weather causing it. Mind you, i get very breathless and bit wheezy when it gets really hot in summer. I was told by nurse it can be down to central heating on longer. I mean now, not in summer.

my sons 5 and had it since he was 2 he only suffers when he has cold, flu,

but recently hes been quite bad using his blue salbutamol inhaler more than usual

and he uses the dark brown preventer inhaler twice a day

lastnight he had quite a bad turn he had a rapid heart rate altho his breathin was calm and non wheezy his heart was racing like he had ran a marathon

i heard having too much salbutamol or one of the reacions from using it

he also complains that his tummy hurts him when he gets quite wheezy

im just abit confused as my doctors tell me something new everytime
