This is my first post as I have never felt the need for support before when handling my asthma. My asthma was diagnosed at around 50 and is generally not a problem. I take fostair with occasional use of a reliever. However, after a visit to see grandchildren, I have picked up a flu-like illness and suffered for around ten days now. My asthma is currently much worse with tight chest, wheezing, coughing, and no apparent improvement over this period. No life threatening, I'm sure, but where do I go from here? I am in currently back in the UK after travelling in Europe. Please help.
