I visited my local GP today (despite going walk in to get checked out yesterday following attack) as I already had it scheduled and I told her what has been going on past couple of weeks. Been given pred but told not to take it for at least a week (just completed 5 days) as she thinks I am getting better and also if I start taking it then I'll have to then come off it gradually or I'll get worse from suddenly stopping it. She is also testing bloods just in case for infection as see if salts etc are all normal.
The confusing bit of advice is, I told her about my attack on Monday night. I was able to contol it after pumping a lot of salbutamol in me but I did not feel right after it, however I was fine that night and slowly recovered yesterday. She told me that I should have gone to the hospital and that any acute severe attack can be dangerous and be treated seriously. However, I feel that I would have just been clogging up A&E and using my spacer and salbutamol seemed to eventually control it. Surely in this situation I am fine to stay at home to rest and then seek walk in next day?
