Hi folks- perhaps I should know the answer to this so please accept my apologies for being a numpty....
My reason for asking is that I woke up wheezing this morning - as is normal for me at some stage (s ) of the day- and have also been coughing and wheezing since-relieved thankfully by my inhaler- yet my peak flow this morning was 410, going up to 440 after taking my seretide 125 (4 puffs this morning due to yet another impending cold and the same again tonight). My range has gone up slightly in recent weeks from 380-390. Also, a few weeks ago when my asthma was the worst it's been yet since my diagnosis in October,(being unable to hold a conversation; walk more than a few steps or even put away an online grocery delivery without being short of breath & coughing etc), yet when I saw the GP my peak flow was the best ever at 460!! Thankfully she realised that the two courses of abx were not helping as she heard me wheezing and she prescribed a 7 day course of pred which helped vastly; but I really am confused. Does anyone have any answers??
Btw- I have now been referred to a specialist as my GP has acknowledged that the treatment I've received hasn't brought my symptoms under control, but I really would be grateful if anyone can shed any light on what's as clear as mud to me at present.
