Just wondering if anyone has nebulisers at home? Have they helped you? I've always been under the impression that Drs don't like home nebulisers for asthmatics as if your bad enough to need nebulisers you should be seeking medical attention anyway.
However in the last few months my asthma has become quite uncontrollable. I have been on steroids since February and the last 3 months I have been on 40mg. Not ideal but everytime I try and wean down I end up being put back up as i go down hill. I'm still wheezy even taking them and fostair and another inhaler i can never remember the name of, plus ventolin and montelukast.
Anyway I've been in hospital quite a few times for various lengths of time and having ct scans etc. my last stay I was asked if I had home Nebs and it was mentioned I should have them. I hate nebulisers I dont like the racing heart and shakes I get with them and I can never sleep after having them I appreciate they do work though (even if it takes a few) and it's more and more that I have to go to the GP or hospital to have them. My consultant said he will talk to me about them at my next appointment (end of this month). So i guess I have till then to kind of form a view.
I'm just interested in anyone else's experience in them? I often have found speaking to other people going through it gives me a much more well rounded idea. I always walk in and have no idea what to say and since it's getting worse and I'm getting to the point where I am missing so much of my life I kind of want to take more control, and hopefully get myself back to myself, if that makes sense?
