I have had asthma since I was 5 years old, I'm now 29 and it has gotten progressively worse.
I have finally been referred to a specialist after all these years.
I have tried montelukast but the side effects gave me severe migraines which left me bed bound and I have two young children to run around after.
I am on prednisolone, seretide and salbumatol at present but recently I have been getting really out of breath whenever I eat, I'm so tired all of the time, my heart races constantly, I shake and feel dizzy, my chest is always tight like someone is sitting on my chest and I can't even walk to the shop without needed my reliever.
My peak flow is around 250, going down to 200 on a particularly bad day, on the best of days I can blow 300.
I'm not overweight at all if anything a bit under and I was quite active until my asthma got bad.
Is there anything I can suggest to the specialist when I see him/her next week? Anyone have any success stories with any medications that I havnt mentioned?
Thanks very much for reading it is really appreciated.
