I am having a terrible day, hay fever not helping and lungs flaring big time, I have used my Bricanyl reliever 18 times and have used my nebuliser 8 times using Atrovent and Bricanyl nebules each time, unfortunately nebs only helping for approx 2 to 3 hours. My oxygen sats 88. Pulse 110. Peak flow this morning was 250 (my personal best peak flow is 350). Gradually I have seen my peak flow drop to 80. I am following my action plan laid out by my consultant.
I spoke to my GP today but he advised that the next step would be to increase the Prednisolone but is very reluctant to do that because of my steroid wean and I am due to be admitted to hospital sometime next month to try and reduce the steroids down to 10mg or even 7mg but my consultant not too optimistic about me getting to the latter.
I am so fed up of struggling to breathe today and I am really hoping I can avoid the little green men.
