I have been on Seretide not for a number of years and I am finding know that it doesn't seem to be affective anymore.
Firstly, I am quite fit for my age and have been for many years. The last year had been troublesome. I have a recurring bout of throat infection and coughing all the time with a constant deep tickle in my chest. I go to GP and get antibiotics - soon as they are done it all comes back again. I am a singer and at the moment cannot sing anything because of the hoarseness and no clear notes will come out and I cough if I try. The cough is like an involuntary convulsion that is really powerful and anybody that witnesses it get quite concerned.
I also suffer from sore mouth even after much rinsing. All of this keeps me up at night and is also getting me (and my wife) down.
The Asthma nurse and GP dont know what to suggest. I am to return again next week.
About a month ago I had a Bupa health assessment and made a particular point of discussing the asthma problem. Tests showed that I have absolutely nothing wrong with my chest and lungs have the capacity of a 36 year old man (I am actually 53). They suggest it could be just an allergy!
I would like to just stop the Seretide and get my voice back but not sure if I can
I'm at a loss. Any suggestions out there.
