So, I've finally started uni! I love being here but my asthma is so much worse right now. I'm quite SOB all the time and am really struggling walking around (ok, everything seems to be uphill but even if I take it slow it gets to me!). Last night I had a quite night in and went to bed 'early' and I just laid in bed really struggling to breath. I do have a bit of a cold but I always have colds and that has never got me this much in the past. I had to sleep almost sitting up! This morning I was ok but I have got a persistant cough that's come back. I think the increase in my preventer is also upsetting my throat since it seems constantly dry and makes me cough.
I know that the inhalers I have right now are not the best for me, and I am going to make an appointment for a review tomorrow since my nurse back home couldn't change them (see my moaning thread!). I think maybe the smoke machines in clubs have triggered me a bit but I haven't spent much time near them so they can't be the reason for my asthma being worse. I've only moved an hour away so I wouldn't think environment was a massive factor either. My halls only opened last year so it can't be damp of mold. My pf is between 330 and 370 which is low for me since my best is 450, but then it has been low for a while. I'm hoping for a nice nurse who'll explain everything to me but in the meantime any advice? Or anything that could be an obvious trigger that I'm missing? I have moved from the country into a city but there is very little traffic around the uni and most of the local roads are perdestrianised anyway so I'm not sure if pollution is a factor.
Ok, I've gone on long enough! Not entirely sure what I'm looking for in making this post, but I'll appreciate any replies
