Hey, first of all this is nothing to worry about, it's an innocent question and my gp/team are aware of it!! so no need for worry or alarm
I've had pretty horrible asthma for a while and it's never been great.
Over the past couple of months, I've been really quite unwell with my asthma and due to a number of factors I've been admitted to ITU twice in the last month - been before but it's an awful experience.
I've been struggling alot with both infections and allergies. And not really recovering properly before the next big attack.
Recently I've been struggling with pain in my accessory muscles and ribs as well as across my back and shoulders/neck. Having spoken to the team when I have been in hospital and my GP, we are of the opinion that it is because my lungs are acting up and I have been working hard for a long time.
The issue is I have been taking paracetamol and my GP has prescribed codeine. But it's not doing a lot and the pain is upsetting my breathing. I also suspect I have another infection brewing as the bottom of my left lung is really sore and I don't feel as though I can get a deep breath, as well as a temp etc.
I just wondered how familiar this sounds to others? I am seeing my GP tomorrow as she's checking up lots at the minute because of how volatile my asthma is being.
Thanks guys xx
