Hi there, I was diagnosed with late onset asthma in my early 40’s following a bout of bronchitis, now 62 and just discovered this site.
My asthma is usually managed and normally I can go to exercise classes after work, however, following a chest infection at the end of November (two lots of antibiotics and one lot of oral cortisone) have been struggling to breathe & sleep since. Ended up in A&E on Boxing Day, then surprisingly got to see a GP the day after!! Had inhaler changed from Symbicort to Fostair, which is easier to use, but still using Ventolin multiple times per day. Dreading going back to work tomorrow as not easy to whip my inhaler & spacer out to use. Sorry for the long post, but thanks for reading. Wishing everyone a healthier 2018.
