Hi everyone, my name is Selina, and this is my first time posting on this forum.
I'm 56, widowed, and have suffered rom severe asthma all my life, and more recently, COPD.
Last month my GP drastically reduced my Ventolin inhalers from one a week to one every two weeks. He claimsI was over-using it. I take Seretide and Atrovent regularly as a preventative,however my chest is still tight and wheezy most of the time, and being on such short rations severely restricts my range of movement regarding exercise. I dare not swim anymore, and can barely do any housework lest this trigger an attack.
My GP also feels my asthma is partly psychological, which makes me very angry, as asthma and COPD are both physical illnesses.
I'd be very grateful if anyone could advise me on how to deal with this problem.
