Well...I'm moaning about nothing really, and I apologise, but despite taking more Symbicort and salbutamol than I could count, and having singular at night as well, my peak flow is hovering around 350 and I'm feeling pretty rubbish. I saw my GP last Wednesday (about something totally different) and while I was there he asked how my breathing was. I said well so-so to be honest, sometimes I manage it fine but there are days when my husband will say ""what's that weird noise"" before realizing it's coming from my chest! his response was oh dear that's not brilliant, but you're on pretty much maximum asthma medication so there's not much else we can do but hope it gets back to normal soon.
There are lots of people on here with asthma worse than mine and I feel silly complaining, but I actually found this answer quite depressing. Surely there's something else they can try?? I'm struggling with so much at the moment, ME symptoms as well, that to be just sitting around hoping the cough/wheeze/breathlessness suddenly improves feels like a step too far. I've had 2 courses of prednisolone since Christmas Eve, and they've both helped, but it's almost as though once the course finished the boost they provided has ebbed and I've taken 3 steps forward and then another 2 back..so I'm better than I was before but not as good as I thought I should be, if this makes sense?
Just wondering if anyone else's GP has suggested anything else useful other than the meeds I'm currently taking? Anyone who has read my previous posts will know, my faith in doctors is minimal at best and I'm more than willing to believe that mine are useless!!!
Thanks for any help anyone can offer xx
