Hi, I've been struggling for a few weeks now, asthma symptoms being a pain, but also coughing up gross phlegm, achey, exhausted, sweaty and feel like my lungs are stuffed full of ground glass. I went to see the asthma nurse Last week who put me on 40mg of prednisolone but said no crackling so no anti-biotics needed. Initially a relief as I've had 5 chest infections in the last 6 months.
But... I feel like I might be getting worse. My peak flow is stuck in the 60% now, im constantly coughing and exhausted from waking up numerous times last 2 nights.
Could she have missed an infection (I do have a lot of them!) or do I just need to give the steroids a little longer to kick in?
Thanks in advance x
