I have had asthma since i was 21yrs old and am now 57yrs old and have just had my very first entry to A & E on 28th Dec '16. I could not breath my asthma was exacerbated due to a chest infection. Well I survived but very frightening experience to say the least. I am still reducing down prednisolone and do not return to work until next Monday 16th. Breathing getting better daily.
