Hi im 29 and recently felt unwell started feeling faint and then developed progressive breathlessness. A couple of weeks back someone was cleaning in front of me and I started coughing and felt all wheezy.
Went to the GP and they gave me a blue inhaler and told me to do peak flows for 2 weeks and that it was likely asthma. Iv been doing my peak flows and then are looking pretty zigzaggy, low in morning and high in the evening. when I use my inhaler my peak flow comes up aswell. Iv done it for a week but im still really struggling with the breathlessness and feeling like I cant get enough air in. today felt awful and iv used the blue inhaler so many times. im considering going to out of hours, but im currently staying with my parents and I know my mum just thinks im exaggerating and being stupid and annoying people.
iv got other illnesses and it just seems like its one thing after another. I don't know how I can just suddenly get asthma. I know my granddad had it badly, and my brother had very 'mild' asthma as a kid but nothing else.
