Hi there, I've suffered wih asthma for 15 years. I've had pleurisy & double pneumonia a couple of times which has made it worse. I switched to Simbicort this summer which has been good but the cold weather has really set me off this year. I'm using my Bricanyl at least a couple of times a day. My asthma has defs contributed I believe to the fact that I suffer from panic attacks and generalised anxiety. I have counselling for this once a week which is helping me. My asthma has been really bad the past few days and the pain In my left lung is dreadful. I went to A&e yest as it felt like I was being crushed. They said basically it's just an asthma pain, no infection and told me to take the rescue dose of pred. I'm really worried about taking it as I've read/ heard that they can make you feel mentally low and increase anxiety. has anyone experienced this at all? X
