for the last few months my asthma has been completely uncontrolled, i'm in A&E ALL the time, and it's driving me a bit bonkers. i just feel so out of control. i'm taking seretide, fluticasone, montelukast, theophylinne, prednisilone and meds for reflux. no-one is ever gonna give me home nebulisers as they all know how much i HATE ringing 999 and will never trust me to be sensible with it (i would be, but they just dont believe me - but tbh i dont want to need home nebs so i can cope w/o). they've found my ige levels to be high and implied they were thinking about xolair (but i dont know if its suitable as i didnt ask the actual numbers)
does anyone know what sort of things could be tried next? i know it depends on individaul circumstances, but i just feel like i need to know that there is more they can try, and that its posible for me to get off these stupid steriods!!!
also, during my last attack they did my ABGs (ugh) and found my CO2 was a 'little' high, i got the impression it was still just about normal, but borderline. what does this mean, is it the same effect as when people hyperventilate, or the opposite? it seemed to make them more worried but my oxygen levels seemed normal so why would this be?
thanks for any advice - i'm finding it really hard to feel this rubbish and like my life is on standby all the time! x
