Hi all, new to the site and need some advice. I had asthma as a child, mainly brought on by hayfever, but grew out of it...until now at the age of 41. I had a bad chest infection last year, after which i was diagnosed with asthma. Ventolin on its own didn't help. Tried brown and green inhalers to no avail. Fostair didn't work at all, afterwhich i had my first and hopefully only asthma attack! I've had to take prednisolone several times over the last few months. On Monday they have given me Symbicort, Ventolin, Beconase nasal spray, antihistamine tablet and Montelukast. I feel a bit more stable and coughing is less but still have poor peak flow and a strange dry lung feeling. Anything over a walking speed makes me breathless. Stairs are a no no!
Does anyone have any advice as to how to exercise to help myself? I cant stand the thought of feeling like this going forward as i used to be a gym bunny and fighting fit 18 months ago.
Not sure of my triggers but i'm pretty sure i am sensitive to a lot of things!
feeling a bit sorry for myself.........
