Hi first time on here.
So I was diagnosed asthmatic around 10 years ago at 14, since then it was generally very well controlled, the occasionally attack, but I could generally live me life. I was in a low dose of my steroid inhaler, rarely took my blue.
Three years ago, my asthma got increasingly worse, I was moved up a dose in my brown inhaler. My doctor prescribed Montelukaust and told me to take 2 doses of my blue inhaler before my brown, twice a day. And to continue that until my next review.
Everything seemed to settle down again, doctors told me to continue with my action a plan.
Then within the last year I've had 9 chest infections throughout the year. Throughout the last 10 years I've had pluriesy quite a few times. Within the last 2 months, I've had 2 chest infections and tonsillitis. over the last 6 months I've been increasing finding it difficult to control my asthma, I'm having to use my blue inhaler, frequently, one day I had to use it 5 times in one morning! I've had a constant cough for the last 3 weeks. Making me cough so much, I can't catch my breathe. I've been to the doctors on and off for months and they just keep telling me to take my medication (which I do).
They aren't listening to me. I'm becoming breathless walking up the stairs, missing out on dance lessons and going out with friends, I never used to be this bad. What can I do??
Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice for me?
