Our nearly 4 year old daughter has been ""query asthmatic"" for about 2 years now. She's currently on daily clenil 50 (1 puff morning & night when ok and up to 4 puffs morning & night during flare ups) and ventolin when needed.
We managed to wean her off all inhalers over summer and she started back on clenil about 6-8 weeks ago. She only ever has flare ups if she has a cold (no matter how mild). And during colds, it's really bad. But only ever during the night (until this cold).
Our family doctor has always told us, if things get bad in the night we should phone NHS24 for advice, they always send us to our out of hours, and the doctors there always make me feel like crap, make me feel I am wasting their time. Last week I was told at 3:30am ""take her home and put her to bed"". As if I want to take my child out at that time of the morning, in the freezing cold. We do what we are advised. Anyway, rant over lol!
What I'm looking for is a place I can post with people who understand. None of my friends have children who have the symptoms my daughter has, so I feel so isolated. I know doctors don't diagnose in under 5's, so we are still in the dark as to whether our child is asthmatic.
I know this is long-winded, I'm just glad to have found somewhere with people who can relate.
