Hi, I have had asthma since a young child. I have been v lucky and it hasn't affected me badly. It has always been triggered by common things like allergies and cold weather. I am in great admiration of those on this forum who have a really bad time with it.
I had a virus last Christmas which meant I was given prednisolone, a new steroid inhaler, had a chest x-ray and blood test. I now use Forstair. I feel like the virus has changed my asthma- any tightness I get is much higher up in my lungs ( where your sternum is) and is much 'heavier' feeling. Has anyone else felt like their asthma has changed? Luckily a friend went through a similar experience with a virus the previous year, as the gp's were useless. Thanks, Jo
