Are other having problems with steroid medication treatment for their asthma inflammation symptoms. I have to.go on prednisolene for over half of the year as i have several.severe asthma bouts each year resulting in emergency ambulance trips and hospitalisations. I have seen a chest consultant at hospital chest clinic the past 9 years..im on seretide 500 preventer and montelukast but still get very ill each year for weeks on end with it..nebulisers etc. I used to tolerate steroid meds well a few years back..40mg for 3 weeks or so then cone off over 2-3 weeks..now it takes me months to get off prednisolene..the withdrawal side effects are extremely bad and have me housebound and bedbound alot of the time..muscle weakness and tremors sonetimes to the point of almost collapse, horrible sweats, nasty flu like symptoms temperatures and awful.pains especially tummy cramps. I am.on a reduction programme just now since hospitalisation at the beginning of september. Asthma takes over my life and makes me very low and anxious..i syrughle with mental.health issies also and fibromyalgua, ibs and mobility issues(osteoarthritis). Its very tough im a mum with a 7 year old and 12 year old. I struggle every day and have to use childcare alot for my wee boy and rely on.my partner as a carer for me too..tho.he works fulltime. How do other mums cope?.i dont have family nearby to.help out either. Advice and support appreciated thanks xx
