Hi everyone my name is Emma. I am new to the forum and to asthma. I am 34 years old and only diagnosed 6 months ago. Since this time I have had 4 admissions the last one being Tuesday. I had what was described as a severe attack requiring lots and lots nebs,oxygen and iv magnesium. I must say I am finding it quite hard to accept that I have asthma as I had no problems as a child and was terrified on tues, had the attack In front of my 2 year old daughter which was upsetting for her also. I am recovering at home now on week course steroids and antibiotic. A&e doc suggested this attack was triggered by chest infection. I have been signed off work for a week and due to see asthma nurse on tues. I am currently taking symbicort, ventolin as and when ( a lot at the moment!), montekulast, loratidine and mucodyne. Still feeling tight and short of breath so trying to take it easy. It's nice to be able to write this down knowing that you will all understand what I am going through! Thanks for reading x x
