I am baffled, and I hope someone out there could explain. Recently I had a run-in with an inscence stick. It really didn't agree with me, and the day after the encounter I woke up feeling I was getting a chest infection. I wasn't and very gradually the asthma sensations/symptoms wore off, over nearly 10 days. Throughout this time my peakflow didn't vary much at all, nothing to cause concern.
On day two after my inscence stick encounter I contacted the very helpful Asthma UK nurses, still feeling rough in the breathing department, and asked for advice. She told me to immediately act on it, which I did. I got permission to take a bit more symbicort than usual. (I am now on SMART regime).
What I don't understand is why the importance to act, when the peakflow was fine, even though I felt rough? The asthma UK nurse was pretty emphatic about it. It was a relief to me, but if I had followed my own logic, I would have said as long as my peakflow was fine then there was no problem in spite of how I felt.
