Hi...im a newbie here, please be gentle!!
I was diagnosed with asthma I my early 30's and for the past 10 yrs it has been well controlled.
Serotide x2 daily
Ventolin as needed.
I have regular checkups and have not needed a change in medication for a while.
I had an attack at work last week, first one in about 18 months. Ended up in AE for treatment.
40mg steroids daily x 6 days to take home.
Although my breathing is better, I feel totally exhausted. Just sleeping all the time.
I'm due to be back in work in 2 days and at the moment I just don't feel like I can do it. I get the feeling that people (without knowledge of asthma ) think you just 'get over it' when the attack is over.
Am I odd ???? Does anyone else find it takes a while to get over???
I just feel a bit 'lost' and like people expect me to be fighting fit again......and I'm not.
