Hi Health Unlocked Community
The last time I wrote on here I had been taking some antibiotics for a mild chest infection. The antibiotics helped with the increased doseage of Ventolin 5 puffs 4 times a day plus Symbicort 2 puffs morning and evening but I'd still not recovered properly and found walking upstairs made me really breathless.
Saw GP today and he's sending me for a chest XRay as he thinks he can still hear something.
Dr also changed me onto Fostair 100/6.
As a newbie with asthma problems I'm still learning and feel quite out of my depth but I'm seeing the asthma nurse tomorrow and the responses from this community help to reassure me enormously - thanks everyone 👍
I'm finding when I change from being inside my car to getting out in the cold starts me coughing; then I feel quite breathless - any tips really appreciated.
My lowest peak flow with the chest infection was 250 and it's now 310.
