Hi, hope you don't mind me joining guess at that stage of needing some support.
I had really bad childhood asthma (ICU/HDU...) then from 14-28 years nothing at all was like it vanished.
Then last feb I was rused into resus where I was admitted for 2 weeks, the same happened in August again 2 week admittance and then 8 days ago was discharged yesterday. This time they have discharged me with the added diagnosis of COPD something I know very little about though research says to me 29 years is young to have it?
I am currently on symbicort smart, ventolin and montilucuas (sp)
The hospital have added Theophylline tablets twice daily and another pump.
Along with repeat precription of steroids and antibiotics so I can start them whenever I feel a chest infection coming ( I suffer chest infection massively which trigger my asthma)
Just wondering does anyone else have COPD who could explain anything to me about it?
I'm distressed with the asthma coming back and so harshly I've 3 young children and work full time and it seems to be taking over my life.
