Having had and neglected asthma for 20+ years it's really come to bite me on the ass. ... it all started with a high pulse (see my other post for the details) anyway I've been taking beclomethasone for a month or so now and have really noticed a difference in how light and easy it is to breath (I'd figured I was just massively unfit and lazy before)
What really concerns me is I've been obviously having symptoms I've ignored/ not noticed for years including :
- breathlessness during exertion
- various pains in my chest (put these down to lifting and moving stuff and straining muscles)
- heaviness in my chest (which was almost permanent so I learnt to live with it/stopped noticing )
- lack of energy (just thought I was working too hard)
- disturbed sleep
So what I'd like to know is how do other people deal with/make sure they notice the less obvious symptoms?
What other symproms should I look out for?
