I am concerned about my treatment at the moment. I have a new consultant and in all honesty I am not confident or happy with them. I have been a chest clinic patient for at least 20 years and my asthma has meant that I have been on steroids quite a lot throughout that time and I use to be an maintaince dose
years ago. Any way I so this new consultant for the first time as my old one left and was asked why I was there and told me I was on too much medication so that didn't boad well with me and since then he has messed around with my meds which I am not happy with as it has meant I have had numerous rescue doses over the past 6 months.
I was retired on ill health a long time ago and it took me years before I returned to the work place part time. But I now have a mortgage and kids so I am worried with all these changes to my meds and time off work. I do not want to go through that again. I am not asked basic questions like are you waking up at night, what symptons do you have, have often are you using your neb/blue inhaler in fact on the 3 occasions I have been every time has been you shouldn't be on this or that etc. My file is thick so why they don't know my history is beyond a joke, allergies are there, variarabilty is there.
Now had a letter for a lung function test. I remember having one years ago, but what is the purpose of this as they know I have asthma and I am brittle at times which led to being in and out of hospital for years.
Recently had to go A&E after an attack then pain in chest so had to be checked for a heart attack or blood clot. Not happy.Don't know why I need further tests when they know what it is and last time they caused me to flare up.
