I have been struggling now for the last few weeks, last Fri I had a particularly bad attack, thankfully managed to avoid hospital, but upon reflection, it might well have been the best place for me, as my recovery from it has been very slow. I am suffering so much during the night, as I am sure so many others do, my blue reliever spray is getting a lot of use, probably too much, but thankfully it's still doing its job. Consequently the lack of sleep is affecting me during the day , but it's the pain & heaviness, in my chest, that's concerning me too. On the reducing dose of Predenislone, I am now down to just two tablets & that will drop to 1 for 4 days on Tue. No change in the rest of my meds . The last time I saw my GP he said there was nothing more he could do for me & the next stop was A&E & although during the night I get bad I fear I would be wasting their time as its not strictly an emergency if getting up & using my blue inhaler gives me relief.
Does anybody have any advise? My asthma is caused by hay fever, so hopefully things will settle down in a couple of weeks anyway, it's just between now & then!!!!
