I have posted on here a few times - my symptoms started early 2015, inability to exercise - I used to run a lot but really began to struggle.
I persevered until August as whatever it was ruined my holiday - struggling for breath, coughing stuff up day and night. On returning home I made an appointment with my GP - antibiotics, steroids and an inhaler were prescribed. Things improved for a while but the symptoms returned.
Since then I have had ventolin, qvar, symbicort and last week fostair. The fostair seems to be the best up until now - however exertion still leaves me struggling. Only prednisolone has returned me to normal service.
I know lots of people with asthma - none of them have had it happen as quickly as what happened with me, and none of them have gone through the various meds like me. A 3 mile cycle from work has left me with a very tight chest.
The fact that only the pred seems to give me any real relief makes me think it may be something more sinister. As an aside, no trigger for my asthma could be found, but my IgE levels were over 300.
Have any of you only been able to get relief from tablets?
