I have had very difficult asthma all my life. A few months ago I caught pneumonia and while I got slightly better I have never really recovered. Over the last couple of weeks my inhalers seemed to stop helping me completely. Unfortunately I don't respond to steroid pred no matter how high the dose. My ventolin relived also seemed to stop helping when I was struggling a little. The gp has referred me to the hospital however it will take a while to be seen
It seems to take lots of ventolin just to get rid of a little wheeze. Is it worth asking the gp for ventolin nebules so that I am not going through so much inhaler for every tiny wheeze until I can see the consultant? I already have a nebuliser from a few years ago and have not used it for a long while. I could easily get it serviced.
