Hi, although I've been asthmatic since I was a mere babe in arms my asthma has, for the last 18 years, been well controlled. However, in November I was diagnosed with pneumonia which has kicked off my asthma big time. I have been on steroids on and off since Nov and recently saw Consultant who has left me on them for 2 months,every time they stop I have another exacerbation. Indeed my Consultant is slightly concerned as to what is going on. Ihave had a load of bloods done and I am keeping a food diary. I have noticed that spicy foods and dairy do seem to be affecting my chest, just wondered if anyone else had any advice? This is all very new to me! I am extremely frusutrated as my asthma is stopping me doing my day to day activities, I am struggling big time and can't do anything without puffing on the old Ventolin (something I did very infrequently before.) Any comments or advice would be gratefully received.
