We as asthmatics are told to take our blue inhalers when we feel we need it.
Are there any others like me who struggle to work out when it is needed?
I do not wheeze and have never wheezed. So I cannot listen for the need.
I am on high esomprezole 40mg two tablets twice a day so often get indigestion so a tight chest is indigestion for me.
So that is two ways of feeling out of the question.
I frequently choke on food due to my physical disability so always have a cough from this
So that is a third out of the way.
I often get breathless but have been told this is because I am unfit due to my phyiscal disability.
So that is a fourth put the way.
I normally try my blue inhlaer if my peak flow drops as feeling i need it does not happen.
I have been told I have problems feeling the need because I am autisitic and autisistic people do not have the body feels sensations unless they touch the object. There is no way I can touch my airways to see if they need blue inhaler.
Does anyone else struggle to rely on taking blue inhaler when they feel the need? Does anyone else struggle to feel when they need there inhaler?
