Hi everyone about two years ago I had very bad shortness of breath so went to my GP. I was told that I was taking mefication for Asthma and according to my records had asthma even though no one had actually told me I had asthma before this. I was prescribed a blue inhaler witjout being shown how to use it and that was it. I have only had two other attacks since then one of them a couple of days ago after hoovering. I had a burning in my chest and found it very difficult to breath and it was worse than the previous one which was triggered by a deodorant spray. It took about 2 hours to calm but had difficulty breathing into the night. After my back and chest were very sore and I was exhausted. I found my blue inhaler but it was out of date. I am worried and havent been to the gp not sure do I need to get another inhaler and who do i ask to show me how to use. I am a 49 year old women and do i have asthma or intermittent asthma. Should i have a inhaler all the time. Just not sure. Any help advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
