ok so this is my second post and I have has my gp and asthma nurse working double time to try and get my asthma under control. so im currently having so far a 5 day attack I don't know what's kicked it of I can only assume.
so on the 29th March a ran out of my montelucas. I made a mistake with the easter bank holiday. so I phoned my gp and explained this a to him. my asthma was really good finally on an even kill and he wanted me to go back to my 100/6 fostair as I'd been on the 200/6 for a month (last serous flair up was 6weeks ago and I was in hospital for it. so my gp said that a few day with the montelucas would have no adverse effect on me so I didn't think any more of it.
it's exactly the same symptoms as when I was sent to hospital. but this time except my pf have drop to issue lowest and interview he red zone 230 from 470.
i wasnt feeling great tuseday but as we all know with asthma you can start on feeling crappy and improve or go completely down hill so as precautions I took all my asthma stuff to work and my asthma action plan. told my senior members of staff thay asthma is being a bit unpredictable and it wasn't really a concern as pf wasn't showing any problem I just had symptoms. it wasn't until I started driving to work I realised I had badly misjudged the situation. I spent the who 15min journey breathing through my nose because any more deeper breathing was impossible from the tightness and pain in my chest.
i was feeling a bit better when I arrived at work so decided to stay thinking that was the last of it.
but it kept fairing up until I took some time to calm myself and them I'd feel serously bad again. so with time to calm I'd feel a bit better but then when I start working again is felt seriously bad. my blue was making me feel worse. I eventually admitted defeat and went home.
phoned my gp and was seen later that evening. he basically took my temp said no sign of an infection but its definitely my asthma. so I said in my asthma plan I'm meant to for worsening symptoms take two puffs of the 200/6 fostair but I don't have any and gp didn't want to prescribe me another one when he said I can take 4 puff of my 100/6 twice a day. so that what I've done for 2-3 days.
im back on my montelucas but he's said that I must never stop taking it as its possibly the thing keeping my asthma from going over the top.
so i had my back to work meeting. I've only had 3 separate days off in 4 months because of my asthma. I hate it effecting my work but it's becoming unavoidable at the moment anyways my work has said the my behaviour on tuseday when I ha dmy asthma attack at work was unprofessional and they said I was obsessed with my pf (been told by my asthma to do my pf if I can and right down what possible triggers I'm about) so I'm following professional advice from a highly qualified person. and then they said me using my areo chamber in a private office to do my inhalers before I left work or on my breaks was unprofessional and unexpectable behaviour. and they said I should think about getting another job.
my asthma wasn't nearly as bad before I started working there but i love the job. I have a second volunteering job with the ambulance service and I attended cardiac and breathing difficulties and I've never had any problems with my asthma doing that or when I working on the ambulances I've never had a problem there either. but im. alway in different locations and not stuck in the same place for hours.
now seeing a Dr at 11.45 today for some steroids or antibiotics of she feels I have a infection brewing.. I have a prominent wheeze right at the end of my pf which I don't usually have. my blue only makes me feel better is I sit upright and do nothing! but I still have symptoms. clearing my throat a lot I seem extra mucus there... plus I'm coughing far more than i normally do and I'm bringing up small white sticky lumps so there is definitely inflammation there..... I just have no idea why is so aggressive again. just doing 15 steps is bringing it on..
now im too scared to tell my management or senior staff if my asthma is bad and I'm to worried to phone in sick.
i know I can't be the only one going through this.
i love talking can littrally talk the hind legs of a donkey but I'm feeling far to unwell to even eat, drink and i dont what to talk. this is generally a sign to me that it worse than normal.
im exhausted after 5days of this and forcing myself to carry on because its expected. I'm meant to be working tonight to.
sorry for the very long message but it some times easier to let it all out.
