Hiya. I had my first diagnosis of asthma 5 years ago (in middle age) but it had never given me much trouble until about a month ago when I got up in the morning unable to walk 10 paces. That was due to a combo of air pollution and hayfever, I think. Then 2 weeks ago, I got a cold and last weekend, the same thing - only it has lasted a week now. The doctor has signed me off work and I've got antibiotics, but it's not improving much. Is this usual? I'll admit it, I'm reeling at the moment.
