After admission to hospital with a very fast resting heart rate and suspected blood clot on my lung I came away with an asthma diagnosis.
10 days prednisone and 2x symbicort 2x daily I am finding that my 'normal' isn't normal at all and that I can exercise without 'being unfit and dreadfully out of breath! I have a new lease of life and in 2 weeks I have lost 5lbs.
I'm writing in the hope you can help me learn a little about myself. My peak flow when on the steriods was 440 tops. My peak flow now (a week off the steriods) my peak flow ranges from 380-410. I recorded my pf, as I do nightly, and found I had a wheeze at the end. I have also noticed that sometimes I also have to have a cough too, after putting effort into the pf exhale.
Does the wheeze and the cough mean my asthma isn't as well controlled as I think it is or just expected because I do have asthma?
