Hi mat,

Is your pf still in the red after reliever? If it is then you need to seek help.

If it picks up after you take your reliever inhaler but you're still struggling in between, morning/night then I'd be going to my gp.

Uys always best ti be safe than sorry but obviously this is just my opinion and I'm not medically trained!!

Take care,



well take reliver gose out of red for 5 hours or so then slowly drops but not staying at 500 so it ant as bad as it was i have to see my gp on monday i see how i feel 2mor if not i go to to my gp place there open 7 days a week 8 to 8 so thats ok n they know me well so i see how i feel in the moring thanks :) !
