Unresolved asthma


Hi, had asthma for years, lung cancer 2007, right lower lobectomy, no other cancer problems since.

Last few years asthma has got worse, on Symbicort, Spiriva Respimat and Ventolin.

Currently on Cephalexin and Prednisolone ( 11 days so far) but chest a lot tighter overnight and this morning. Doesn't seem wheezy on lungs but short of breath

Very harsh dry cough too

Do I go back to GP or stick it out?

I think you should speak to your Asthma Nurse or GP

Spoke to nurse, it's worse in mornings and improves greatly by afternoon.

She said to 'up' my preventer inhaler Symbicort.
