Hi, I've got breathlessness exacerbation now, tried to phone hospital for a few weeks every day to check for cancellations, there weren't any. Also tried to phone the consultant's secretary for advise numerous times, she promises to speak to the consultant and never gets back.
My Gp always says that if the hospital cannot control my asthma, then he cannot either , so there is no point going there .
Just wondering If it's similar situation in the other hospitals- impossible to get any advise.
Also - i am not completely sure that I don't have other contributors to my breathlessness apart from asthma but the asthma consultant never advise, who else should I see and Gp is saying - if you already got an asthma diagnosis, why are you looking for anything else- all referrals are coming from Gp surgery's budget so they are very reluctant to refer.
My asthma diagnosis was mainly established because I have high eosinophils
I have been taking prednisolone from my emergency packs for 3 days x 40 mg a day, it does not seem to help!
