I have posted recently saying I'm having a bad time at the moment, needing inhaler every day , constant tight chest, usually I like to run but it is out of the question, extremely out of breathe just walking to shops. Also I'm having an attack a month at the moment, never had this before (in my 3ish years of asthma) but manage to gain control with salbutamol.
Starting taking pred on Sat morn following advice of very helpful AUK helpline nurse. However yesterday I needed inhaler 7 times during day and had attack at half 10 last night, after quite a bit of reliever managed to calm it down but my friends whom I was with at the time said it was scary to watch. Was checked out at walk in today and everything seems fine to nurse but I still have a tight chest, out of breathe walking more than 5 mins and feel rough today. I don't really wanna talk because it is making me tired.
I haven't noticed any PF drop in general, haven't managed to try taking PF during attack, both because I was out and also I don't think I'd be able to do it during. But I don't wanna base how I am on that little device which does not and has not worked for me.
Nurse today said she hears no wheeze but no one has ever reported a wheeze. I tried telling her that even when I had a chest infection last year my chest sounded clear and only knew because of x-ray.
On another note, I don't feel particularly phlegmy during attack/when chest tight, anyone else find this? I cough more than usual but nothing comes up.
To be honest, I don't know what is left to do. Basically feel like I'm having attacks/ constant tight chest but frustratingly I'm not falling into the standard asthmatic symptoms so being shoved off. I don't want to end up having another tonight, my body is too tired for that.
