Hello all, I haven't posted on here in quite some time, I'd sort of given up on trying to get any advice about my asthma.
Over the eight week summer holiday period, I spent four weeks in hospital. After my last admission a couple of weeks ago I went home feeling tired, but my chest felt good, for over a week- it was the best week I'd had in months.
I started sixth form and my a levels on Monday, having to take two breathing treatments a day in the medical room. However, on Tuesday afternoon I was rushed to hospital in an ambulance from school.. Yay. I'd literally just finished my lunch, gone to a history lesson, someone sprayed something and within minutes I knew that was it. I'd end up in hospital, again. At hospital, at one point they even considered moving me by helicopter to the royal Brompton lung hospital as it was so bad.
So my second day of a levels and I ended up in hospital. Almost a week later, I'm still in hospital and still on oxygen.
On top of all that, I suffered two anaphylactic reactions over the summer and have now been diagnosed with anaphylaxis too.
My current meds are; symbicort 400, atrovent inhaler, tiotropium, loratadine, montelukast, nasonex, and ventolin nebules 5mg 4x a day, plus more when I'm bad. On top of that I've now got epi pens too.
When is this going to get better? I know it won't but it's just ruining my life. I don't go out anymore, Im scared to be alone, god knows how my a levels will turn out at this rate.
I've also been referred to the royal Brompton for sleep studies and a lot of intensive testing (not sure what though).
I can't bare it anymore, and I know I'm ranting away whilst all of us on here are in the same boat, but god is it hard to live like this.
