went to the asthma nurse today as I had a rough night with my breathing last night. she said how exhausted i looked (nice!) and asked how it had been since my review last month - i've had two attacks, which is two more than the last year! she gave me a course of steroids for a week, which she hopes will settle it down for now.
she did say, though, that she didn't really know where to go next with my treatment if things don't settle. I've been on Seretide 500 for the last 10 months or so, and Montelukast at night (then just salbutamol reliever). I felt quite uncomfortable at that, as my asthma has been gradually worsening for the past year and seems not to have reached a slowing down point. when I was younger I was permanently attached to a nebuliser, so I am worried that after 10+ years of being fine that it might get to that stage again.
what is the next stage? it isn't that I don't trust my asthma nurse, I just don't know what to do.
