I've had asthma since I was about 9 and it was so mild I would almost forget I had it! I'm now 20 and this past year, I feel like my asthma has got so much worse..
However, where it has always been well controlled, I'm starting to wonder whether a lot of time its all in my head..
For example today, I felt like my throat went very tight, I was a bit wheezy but it went after coughing up a bit of phlegm, and it felt like the air went really thick and I couldn't get any air in.. but my peak flow was 400 which is good for me? I didn't use my inhaler as after about 20 mins, it all went on it own and I felt fine. It's almost as if, as soon as I forget about it and make myself busy, it gets better.
Could it just be in my head?
I'm worried about having an asthma attack. I have never had one so I don't know what it feels like.. when I get a few symptoms of my asthma getting bad I get worried that it could be an attack coming but I never know?
I never wake up in the night due to my asthma so that's a good sign I suppose..
Just looking for some reassurance, I feel abit lost with it all!
I have an appointment booked with my asthma nurse but it's not for another month!
Thank you in advance
