Asthma is rubbish! Had a bad chest a couple of weeks ago and I am not recovering as well as I normally would, went to see my GP with my asthma plan which was set up by the team at Glenfields Leicester which recommends a steroid dose of 40mg 2/52 wks, GP was funny when I produced this and was sharp with me because my peak flow was probably low enough to justify a visit to A&E ( which I have always avoided whenever possible) but reluctantly gave me doxycycline and a prescription for steroids. I am now 10 days into the steroids and have finished the doxycycline but I'm still breathless and wheezy. I also have monthly xolair injections. Feeling very fed up, I work as a TA and have GCSE's starting next week and I need to get rid of this tiredness... Would love to feel well for a few weeks.
