Hello I have had Asthma since 7yrs old. When I had my kids the Asthma changed and I didnt need Prednisolone tabs. In the last couple of years I have needed to start taking the steroid inhalers. When I do use these I get pain (similiar to neuralgia) all over my body. Has anyone had these side effects. Doctors and Specialist's are baffled.

Some asthma doesn't respond favourably to steroids and some patients cannot tolerate steroids. It really depends on a number of things as to how you attempt to manage it (triggers, what's worked in the past, what you take regularly). So sitting on the fence it is difficult to comment without all of the details :/
And it's definitely the steroid? Symbicort has a long acting beta agonist in it as well. If it is just the steroid have you tried Asmanex? I am not suggesting it will be any different but it is only active in the lungs (unlike almost all of the other inhalers on the market) so you tend not to get the systemic side effects with it.
No, not asthmatic but I see many asthmatics as part of my job. I have not used Asmanex twisthaler for a long time but the drug apparently remains inert until it enters the lungs. Therefore whatever stays in your mouth or enters the stomach is less likely to cause side effects. Its ideal for people that experience oral problems from inhaled steroids so maybe it will help
Hi Steven your comments are greatly appreciated. I will definitely discuss with my GP the next time I see him. Can you please confirm what type of work you do? As I have been seen at the Brompton now for a couple of years and they have come up against a stone wall....Is this drug used for heart issues?
Hii I am been investigated at present for Fibromyaligia. How does it affect you. The pains I get are similiar to what someone would get when they have flu/cold in their mouth. A neuraligi type pain. Comes and goes and moves all over the body Have you tried Omalizumab,for the Asthma? Have you tried any alternative treatments?
