Generally doing O.K. over here. I have been having a bit of trouble the last few weeks, but have seemed to have some luck with taking more antihistamine, but am a bit sleepy.
When I have asthma trouble, I get a really tight chest, all of a sudden, and even if I take my inhaler it can take several minutes to kick in. I also cough a lot. Then when I'm really having trouble, I get tight pretty continually, or a bit wheezy.
But what's been happening for the last few weeks is a get tight, I take my inhaler, it eases off like 10 min. later, then I can be fine for several hours, and then the same thing happens. So I've been taking my reliever a few times a day, BUT, I also have most of the day where I'm perfectly fine.
So I called and asked if I should go up on my preventer, or take my reliever by neb, or what? I haven't heard back yet, but have actually been fine for two days. But it seems to kick up when I'm out of the house...at work or church.
Would you take more asthma meds for a while if this kept happening, but wasn't by any means one of your bad attacks? Or just take your reliever as needed?
