Hoping someone can give me a little advice ... I had 3 horrendous episodes of coughing yesterday ( how my asthma presents) eventually had an ipratropium neb at work and a visit to the GP and I have 7 days of 40mg Pred. Following theses episodes over the last 18mths with numerous hospital admissions and mixed diagnosis of VCD and asthma ( very confused with the whole thing) came of Fostair .. went back on it 10days ago at Respiratory nurse advice as hadn’t been feeling quite right for some time.. All good until yesterday ... although I never wheeze with the episodes I cough continuously which is relieved short term by ventolin inhaler ... today although I feel brighter my chest feels heavy and I’m aware of my breathing and still a little SOB on movement !!! Does anyone else feel like this following an episode ... it’s possible my chest is just tired but I’ve never asked if this is how others feel after their asthma exacerbation ?? I’ve had so many diagnosis and the DR and specialist are always focusing on an accident I had 2yrs ago as the cause (stress apparently) although diagnosed a year previously following a virus !! Stress is a factor in asthma exacerbation I know but I couldn’t be more chilled at the moment ... tired maybe with a new puppy in the house but not stressed ..! It’s taken me 10 mths to get back to the job I love due to these events and I don’t want a repeat process again !!!
Any advice regarding similar symptoms would be really appreciated..
thank you xx
