Hi I have been lurking in the forums for a few days now and thought i would introduce myself and ask some advice.
I have had asthma since i was 13 but has not really caused me that many problems until the last few years (41 now).
I have just come home from my 2nd hospital admission this year, last admission was just an overnighter. This one was a 2 day stay, 3 day release then a 6 day stay. I had very high carbon dioxide levels a stay on high dependency with ITU alerted just in case.
Treatment was Magnesium, aminophylline, atrovent, prednisolone prescribed to go with my seretide and singular.
I feel totally clear now, peak flow has actually increased by 20 but I feel quite weak in my legs and still have a few lingering chest pains. Also my chest feels odd, empty, heavy it’s really hard to describe feeling but I don't trust it.
Is this something other sufferers have experienced and also how quickly do you get back into normal activity considering my chest is technically better than ever?
Thanks to for reading and any advice you might be able to give
