Finally got an appointment to see a consultant which i attended today.. I was given an urgent appointment as i should of had one weeks ago but they lost my paperwork... Anyways turns out it was a registrar i saw as consultant was busy, he is trialling me on montelukest and referred me for breathing tests. What bothered me most though is i mentioned i dont wheeze and he said all asthmatics wheeze unless your airway is blocked completely... I asked what to do when i get what feels like an asthma attack without wheeze and he said go to a n e anyway! Last time i went i was refused a neb as i had no wheeze!
I also was told to wait untill my peak flow is down to 230 before i go! I would be half dead by then! The thought of having another attack and sitting in a n e for hours alone struggling to breathe is terrifying!
Sorry for all my posts being the same kind of thing, i just am a bit lost. I thought of making my own action plan but worry it would be dismissed. As it stands i think i will deal with any future attacks at home...
Also slightly dubious about the montelukast as i thought it was more for alllergic asthma which i dont have... He also said i could add another inhaler, any ideas what it could be as im already on ventolin and fostair..
Any input would be great!
