Let's know how the tilt test goes. What does it test for? Glad you got a pick line, as it makes things easier but sorry things are so serious that you needed it.

Sorry to hear you have problems still, maybe the new treatment and test will help for tonight.

How are you feeling now? Any improvement? The humidity is playing havoc with my breathing at the moment, with the air pressure fluctuations. I do feel a bit easier today though. Funny really, as just checked my peak flow, and it is between 150 and 180 as usual, and no wheeze unless I breathe out deeply. Off to Addenbrookes tomorrow for my next session of IV Immunoglobulin. Cant wait until I get trained up to inject myself three times a week, and don't have to go to hot stuffy hospital every three weeks. The 10mg Prednisolone I now take daily have not improved my peak flow. When I was a kid I used to have weekly steroid injections. What kind of hydrocortisone dose do they give IV?
