Hi, I had my first asthma review a few weeks ago and was told by the nurse that mucus wasn't a symptom of asthma. This was a shock as it's my main symptom and goes against the advice of a lung specialist I saw in Ireland earlier in the year who diagnosed allergic asthma. I was given a peak flow meter (never been tested before) and I've been keeping an eye on it. Today I've had a lot more mucus than usual and my peak flow dropped by over 20% over the course of the day. I hadn't noticed a difference in my breathing, but 10 minutes after a couple of puffs of the blue inhaler, it was back to normal and my mucus isn't as much of a problem. I'm feeling very confused!
