I am new to this forum so apologies if i miss something.
I live in Melbourne Australia but this forum seemed promising. This recent cold weather has caused a terrible asthma flare up like never before. Recently i only used my ventolin every now and again only when needed and also have had experiences where ive needed it at night time and it has kept me awake. But now i am trying to get it under control using a preventer and reliever. Using brycanil and pulmicort turbohaler. Some night are worse than others i am in despair at the moment for i cannot get a good nights rest. My pulse can be felt through out my body, and my breathing patterns seems off. More specifically, i cannot fall asleep because when i feel like i am about to go to sleep i am still aware and therefore when i am transitioning to sleep mode the change it breathing wake me up. After this my heart starts racing and i get what seems to be a butterflies in my stomach and i become alert. I take the reliever morning midday and around 7-8pm. Same with the preventer. This being the case sometimes i still NEED to use my reliever around 10pm because even tho im using both puffers and have now for over 2 weeks i sometimes still cannot breathe. I am seeing a sleep respitory specialist in 1 month but cannot function under these circumstances. I just want to be able to breathe and get a good nights rest. Both at the same time not one or the other. Any further clarification on any details can be provided i just need some sort of answer/reassurance. Thankyou in advance for any tips or advice.
