Hi I went bot heartlands hospital to see dr mansur after being referred by Cheltenham hospital I have been on 40 mg of prednisolne for 2 years also salamol beclametasone inhaler 200mg montelukast 10mg seretide 500mg twice twice daily calchichew d3 and alendronic acid once a week. And 5mg of nebuliser solution

When I went to heartlands they prescribed me bambec 10mg two tab twice a day and uniphyllin continus 200mg two tablets per day.

My chest is so tight still constantly wheezing taken blue inhaler 23 times today. Walked half a mile as I don't drive and couldn't breathe, can't go into hospital as have children with special needs

Ct scan shows presence of airways reactivity and my FEV1 is 2.51

walking is my main problem going upstairs is agony I leave it as long as poss before I go upstairs

Is there anything I can do I'm only 35 yrs old and I'm scared

Some people have suggested a wheelchair but I don't think asthma warrants that I don't claim any benefits just want some help and advice
