I'm diabetic and asthmatic. About 6 months ago they put me on Symbicort. Shortly after, I started to experience numbness in my arms, and pins and needles in my hands which when my blood sugar was more in control got worse.
I've got the point today where I'm not breathing so well. The preventer isn't working and the reliever doesn't touch the wheezing I can feel. I can't seem to get enough air in one breath so am over breathing to compensate right now. Got the doctor coming to see me tomorrow but I've got a question.
Has anyone else had the numbness and pins and needles with Symbicort? It worked well at the beginning but it's not working so well now so wondering if what I'm feeling is simply due to wrong meds at present or have I got a chest infection.
I also get tickly ears inside - which I've never had before ever, and wondering if that is anything to do with it too??
