I'm new here (although not new to asthma, which I've had since I was 2) and I have a quick question that I wonder if anyone can help with.
I've not been well for the past couple of weeks - had a chest infection which caused my asthma to flare up. Today was my first day back at work and I've come home absolutely shattered. I'm really struggling to get a proper deep breath in, because every time I try, it comes to a kind of squeaky/wheezy stop. Is this what's called Stridor, and is that normal with asthma?
A few puffs of bricanyl does seem to be giving me some relief so that's a plus!
Hopefully someone will know the answer to this - I think part of the problem with having had asthma since I was so small is that I've never really had an adult conversation about it. The Asthma Nurse tries but I'm always out the door like a flash once my check-ups are done (yes, I know I'm bad!).
