Since being diagnosed with asthma about 10 years ago i have been reasonably well controlled, i am triggered by colds or coughs, cold weather, and exercise that i know about. Since starting university 6 weeks ago I have been taken to A&E in an ambulance three times, and was admitted twice. The second time my oxygen was briefly down to 85% but my chest sounded clear, the third time my chest was 'rattly' but my oxygen was fine, but i was given oxygen anyway (is that standard with nebulisers?) is that normal? for my asthma symptoms not to match up with how well i feel very well?
Also has anyone got any inspiration as to why my lungs might be feeling so cross? The vacuum cleaner is rubbish and so we're getting that replaced but i wouldn't have thought that would cause such a dramatic change. I don't feel particularly stressed, its not cold in my room. I have all my own bedding from home so I'm running out of ideas can anyone else think of anything? I'm on my 4th course of prednisilone in the time I've been here and I really don't like taking all these short courses, if nothing else my food bills sky rocket when i'm on it and i just find it frustrating that its not getting sorted! If anyone does have any ideas that would be really helpful, Thanks in advance, Sophs
