Hi Everybody, wishing you all the best for 2018. I posted a couple of months ago about how my (late onset) asthma suddenly went out of control this autumn and started reacting all over the place to anything and everything. It seems to have calmed down a little, that is, it's not so volatile, but has 'calmed' down to almost a constant 24/7 asthmatic feeling of un-ease, congestion and tightness, breathless if I walk too fast, as if the exacerbation has made everything permanently worse, peak flow is down quite a bit too. GP trying me on some antibiotics in case there is some underlying infection (mucus is thin and clear but more than usual); but am not seeing much improvement in symptoms, although peak flow seems to be back on the way up, at least a little for the couple of days I've been on the ABs. As a relative newbie, am still trying to get to grips with asthma and its management, and so wondered if some of you find basically exacerbations generally grumble on for a few months, or if in winter it is 'normal' for some to feel generally poorly and asthmatic for large portions of the time? My previous winters have all had their challenges but nothing like this. Thanks for any help or reassurances, feeling a bit worried and low.
