I've just joined and was wondering if anyone else has been suffering in this heat recently. I have normal asthma (looking at others posts I can see there are many different types which I never knew!!) I've had it since childhood, I got it from my dad! My normal triggers are pollens in the environment, dust, horses, and colds/viruses. I've never had a problem with temperature change and my asthma, I have been to many heated countries and been absolutely fine, but I have really been struggling with my asthma this past week with the heatwave, I have felt very breathless, very fatigued, and I have an awful cough that makes me sound like I smoke 40 a day! I got sent home from work on Monday and went straight to the doctors, got prescribed prednisolone, which I started that evening. The course finished yesterday (friday) and my symptoms are no better, I'm just wondering what I should do as my cough seems worse this morning and the phlegm I'm now coughing up is starting to become green and it is making my chest ache when I cough. I am quite prone to chest infections if my coughs don't get treated which is why I'm concerned as it's also the weekend and my asthma hasn't been this bad in a long time....
Sorry for the essay!!
