i have add asthma for years salmyin-2 you have just to keep going do not let it get you down


Tnx for the advise it means a lot to hear from a person who experienced it


I occasionally get prickling sensations in my chest. They usually go after a short while. Inhalers and lung problems can both have funny effects on you at times.

Obviously though, if the prickling becomes intense or you think your heart is beating too fast or hard, call for help quickly.


Hi Salmyin-2,

It depends what websites you have researched as many can be scary and it may be overwhelming. It may be helpful to get in touch with our expert nurse helpline on 0300 222 5800 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) or via email

Take care,
