Going downhill again 😔

I'm currently on holiday in Gran Canaria. My peak flow is 270 and normally 450. I'm not sure if I have a chest infection again or not. I'm trying to hold it out until I get back to the UK on Thursday.

I have been given a rescue pack of Prednisolone from my consultant which I started yesterday. So another 3 days to go! I've had 2 hospital admissions this year and 8 trips to A&E. so I'm playing avoidance at the moment.

I currently take Fostair 100/6, Montelukast 10mg, Loratadine 10mg (I have doubled this to 20mg since coming away which is helping slightly) and Ventolin.

I also have Vocal Cord Dysfunction which I only found out about this year so I'm still learning how to control this too.

Oh dear, I do hope you start to feel better soon.

I hope that your asthma has not spoilt your holiday too much.


Hi Jems1995

Sorry to hear you'll not feeling great on holiday. I had a quick chat with our nurse team and as I'm sure you know, when you start to take a rescue pack of pred, their advice would be see a GP as soon as you can. I'm not sure whether you get back in time to be able to have an appointment on Thursday?

Please do give our nurses team a call to have a chat about it before then. They can be reached on 0300 222 5800 )between 9am and 5pm on weekdays).

Take care,
