So I was only diagnosed a few weeks ago but the nurse said that I've probably always had asthma and no one picked up on it before. I currently have a preventer and a reliever. The problem is that, since I started using the preventer, the reliever has stopped working and actually makes things worse!
I admit that I haven't been great at remembering to use my preventer recently, what with a level exams and stuff, but today I found myself very SOB to the point where I felt a bit dizzy so I used my reliever. At first, it had no effect but then I started to feel shakey, as I always do, and then I spent the next two hours coughing and wheezing! I don't have a clue what started it off. The only exercise I did was walking the mile into town to see the olympic torch but I do that walk everyday and it never bothers me. Also, the symptoms came on hours later.
I only use the reliever once a week since I wait until I actually can't manage without it ut it has never done much. It does squirt in a strange way, but then it is new. I'm just wondering whether I should just get another reliever since my prescriptions are free anyway, or whether I should pay the good looking doctor a visit. I am avoiding the asthma nurse at all costs!
Thanks, and sorry I've gone on so much!
