Hi there, Im new on forum, but been using this sítě lots. Please can anyone help? Im 39 & had asthma all my life. Control is up & down, but only hospital once when a child. Last few years asthma getting worse. Had lots stress which doesnt help (two sons one born v prematurel he hasy, both sons admitted hospital asthma,,one multiple times, etc .plus kidney disordersevere reflux & other son asthma, excema & sleep apnea issues etc. Ie my health always on back burner til i crash..
I am on 5 day Pred course just now , also Fostair 100/6 (2x puffs twice daily, but currently 2x puffs 4x day with foster up. Plus Terbutaline 500 mcg daily (currently bout 8/10 puffs daily) also Cetirizine as required
I have had 3 courses of Prednisalone in last 6 months. Started Fostair in May, but just had another attack. Triggers vítal infections/colds. Finally i suffer from severe tremors & palpitations from Turbutaline, but Salbutamol doesnt seem to reach my lungs as well. I also suffer depression badly & insomnia from Pred making me feel desperste. Cant work/play/look after kids or even manage housework. Life štrain on whole family
Any advice please greatly received. Eg what is next step up if these meds not controlling? Also should i ask for Respiratory consultant referral or am i not bad enough? My gp asthma nurse mentioned it. Thanks in advance, Hannah
