Hi I'm new to asthma (late onset) and find it confusing. I never wheeze, well I don't think I do, the doctors talk about a wheeze and gasping for breath during an attack. I cough and cough and think I am going to choke or vomit trying to get the phlegm off my chest which is mostly clear or has small yellow lumps Is this normal ?
I'm guessing that coughing is my main symptom, which makes me feel like I've not got enough air and have a strange sensation in my upper chest. The hospital put me on symbicort 400/12 2 puffs morning and night which I've been using for about 3-4 weeks now, I still feel as if I'm breathing through fabric, will this ever improve or is that what breathing is going to be like for the rest of my life.
