Ashma

Hi my name is Jacky I was dygnosed with ashma years I had it under control until I came in to contact with someone smoking weed and I have inhaled it and it gone to my chest I went to my doctor who gave me a course of steroids and antibiotics which I finished Tuesday and as I didn’t feel any better I called my nurse who advised me to go hospital to get it checked out which I did the hospital gave me another course of steroids and more pumps the blue one 2 puffs every 2 hours for 2 days then every 4hours for 2 day then every 6 hours for 2 days she told me If I am no better then I have to go back as they will need to admit me for a few days which I really don’t want to do can anyone give me any help please as with all the coughing I struggle to breathe when I try to talk thanks Jacky

I think that for the time being you will just have to follow the advice you've been given. There is a lot more advice on the AthmaUK website. However, if they do admit you, you should get care which is more focussed on you as an individual, and perhaps you need a rest. Follow all the usual advice about scarf in cold weather, a well aired house and so on, and you've coped fine with asthma all these years, so you can get over this blip and be fine again. It's a nasty episode, but I'm sure you will recover if you look after yourself.

Good luck!

I feel your pain. I got diagnosed in October with chostochrinditis, and since then my asthma has been flaring up. This is the 3rd time in 4 weeks I’ve had steroids. This time I am on steroids for 3 weeks. Was taken into a&e on Sunday. This is the first time I’ve ever been really bad with it.
