Hi some is you may have noticed my recent posts on other threads, and I decided to introduce myself.
I was diagnosed with adult onset asthma in early 2009 after a bad chest infection. I had been doing well and was reduced from 400/12 Symbicort to 200/6 last autumn without experiencing problems.
This last month has been awful though since a bad cold and last week I had to for the first time take a 5 day 40mg course of Pred. It helped a little but tonight I feel awful again and slightly panicked.
I've taken my reliever 8 times and an saving the last 2 puffs for bedtime, I'm going to go straight to my asthma nurse tomorrow morning.
I'm finding my voice very compromised by my asthma yet my peak flow is around 80% so it shouldn't be so bad.
Any advice would be appreciated.
