So I've finally got a referral to see a specialist. I was in a&e 10 days ago with a mild attack which I'm now not even sure was an attack. Woke in the night with thick clear mucus that is clogging my throat and chest. Nebs are the only thing that seem to help but everyone reminds me the evidence says different. I've been on pred 40mg for 8 days and abx, seretide and ventolin 8 times aday. Feeling like I'm going to have an attack any day now because I'm exhausted, tight chested and shallow breathing. Particularly worse at night and early morning. Can chat for a few mins, walk around for a while so when I see the GP and everything is normal they think there's nothing to be done. I don't want to keep contacting them anymore either because there's no solution-seems like they're only trained in 'life threatening' attacks. I'm scared now. How can I one min be in hospital with regular nebs prescribed and another just be sat at home feeling so much worse than then?
