how are y'all? Hope better than me..:/
Missed yous, haven't been on in quite a while!
Well, first of all, unfortunately already out of my job again after not even 4 months, were prolly afraid they'd have to pay my sick leave since I've been pretty unwell now for quite a while, but well, what can you do.......
I have now been on Seretide since mid June I think, it helped me a lot in the beginning, I mean I still had a tight chest most of the day, but I guess that's just the way it's gonna be..
it helped me quite a lot with the breathing problems and the gasping i had at night, but recently it's been really a lot worse.
The asthma nurses don't all understand me - some seem to think that 'if the stethoscope's not picking up on a wheeze then everything's fine'..was quite surprised that this nurse had one anyway to be honest..
well, the last few weeks my tightness has gotten a lot worse, and the last few days it's been really really really sore - and I can handle a lot of pain usually..
but not only that, also the gasping appeared again the last few days, even though I've even put my dose of Seretide up, sigh, it's really horrible.
Losing breath in the shower, it's really not a nice feeling, guess I have to start bringing my inhaler with me even when jus going for a pee lol..
Last night was worst, but then again my heart's been acting up like it hasn't in a long time, so I don't know if it's been that or the lungs, probably a combination of both, didn't have a scan in almost a year now..
hmm. sorry for all the ranting etc., it's jus gud to get that OFF YOUR CHEST lol..
any tips on how to make the nurses take you more seriously coz I really don't know?
Also NHS24 depends on the nurse you get, some are more concerned, some really don't seem to know or care a lot..
Well, I will be trying to get an appointment 2mrw..
Y'all take care!
