I had my spirometry this morning both before and after taking an inhaler. The nurse said that the results, along with my monitoring, show that I do have asthma.
I was supposed to make an appointment with the gp to discuss the results, but she said that I need to be on a regular preventer as soon as possible so she arranged this with the gp before I left. I am going to collect the prescription from the chemist this afternoon.
So I'm a little overwhelmed and don't know what to expect next. I am happy that the ventolin helps to relieve my symptoms but I do seem to use it quite often. The nurse said to keep using it when I need it and not worry about how much I use, but that soon the preventer should stop me needing it as often.
