So I'm back in a&e (3rd visit since 22-3) and have just been admitted again (I was for the last 2 - 4 then 6 days - hopefully only overnight tonight tho) and am completely fed up. Current diagnosis is (severe?) atopic asthma (tho get triggered by cold/stress etc too)
I'm having weekly trips to the GP and have done now for months, and topped it off with 2 this week (today and Monday). I keep bouncy between red and yellow zone on PF. Went 8 days without GP visit when on theophylline then showed signs of toxicity and got taken off again - best 8 days ever!
I'm next seeing hospital asthma nurse next Tuesday and I'm waiting on appts to see my resp consultant (last saw 2 weeks ago in hospital) and a new consultant at a specialist hospital.
I'm currently taking fostair 200/6, spiriva, montelukast, fexfenadine, carbocisiteine, prednisolone (back at 40mg from a weaning regime where I got to 30mg), flixonase (started today), ventolin, home nebulisers when bad (6 since Monday) plus omeorazole and adcal.
I'm in my final year at uni and have basically had to come to a stop for the last 6 weeks - no revision, no essay, no lectures, no clinic, and with finals now just a month or so away I'm desperate to be able to get on with my life. I struggle walking so exercise is a no ATM (this was triggered by walking less than 100m slowly).
As you can probably tell I'm feeling rotten and I'm frustrated and desperate! Does anyone have ANY ideas (medical or no) which may help get this back under control that either I can do or that I can ask about?
Thanks a lot
Ps apologies for typos/grammar/wrong words I have the neb shakes and am relying on auto correct!
