When I first wrote on here I had attended my first annual asthma check up since being diagnosed 6 years ago with late onset asthma.
A week ago, despite increasing the doseage of my turbohaler and using ventolin I had developed a wheeze I could hear and was getting out of breath when walking on the flat to a car park.
My voice had also become quite husky and I was really tired.
I rang my doctor's practice today at 3.15 to ask for an appointment to see the asthma nurse. When I explained what I had been experiencing the receptionist asked me if I could get to the Practice for 3.30 to see a doctor!! Brilliant.
He could hear the wheeze in my chest and has prescribed a week's course of Prednisolone 5mg, 6 times a day and to go back in 2 week's time to see him again.
I've taken one tablet and already feel different.
Any comments from those with more experience really welcome as I feel I'm only just beginning to learn about asthma after 6 years.
I have a pneumococcal vaccine tomorrow. Is this still ok to have?
