Bit worried and not sure

Hey

I have had a rough few weeks with colds and viruses. I have had an ear canel infection and waiting for it to be hoovered next week. For the last 2 and half weeks I have had the normal cold. i have been runny a slight temperature for the last week with swollen glands in my neck, under my arms and my tummy as have the feeling from last time had swollen glands there. my sinuses are also painful and . For my asthma i have been taking my inhaler ventolin every 4 hours. i know i can go up to 10 puffs if i am very wheezy so have gone up to 6 puffs from 2 . . however this is not working but if i go up any higher it makes me go really light headed and have the shakes . im not sure if this is a virus, or if i have a chest infection as only coughing a little yellow muck or my ear infection has become worse even though it feels no worse than it has been. Im really embarrassed about going back to the doctors as im sure they going to think im a hydrocondriateg soon as have been there every week since october. Can you give me any ideas what to do do at home rather than going back to the doctors. forgot to say have also increased my seratide inhalor by an extra puff.

sorry if i have moaned

Jess xx

  • You're obviously feeling quite rough with all that going on, so don't feel that you're moaning. Coughing up yellow or green muck usually means that you have a chest infection, which means another trip to the docs for us asthmatics. Have you been monitoring you peak flows? If you're using that much ventolin and it's not really working the GP will want to see you. Don't feel like you're being a hypercondriac, you're obviously ill and asthma not good at all. x

    Thank u for your support. looks like i will be going to the doctors tomorow then. I not sure what my peak flow is and can't find my device :9, however my BPF is 425 but it can get to 120 - 150.
