How long will this last?!
I’ve had asthma since I was a child with no treatment for 15 years! Then a couple of years ago I had an attack but since then it’s been very well managed. Usually just with preventer inhaler and no need for my reliver.
This was until last week, where a cold quickly turned to an asthma attack and chest infection. I didn’t identify the signs of my asthma until it was too late as it felt like a sore throat!
After 2 visits to the GP and struggling to breath for 2 days my sister (a nurse) took me to A&E knowing that this wasn’t right. With nebulisers, magnesium and IV steroids I was well enough to come home. Then less than 48 hours later I was back there.
It’s now been a full week, antibiotics are completed, still on steroids but still requiring my reliver inhaler a lot. (At times 10 puffs through a spacer).
It just seems to be never ending, everything is triggering it, I’m exhasted and can’t stop coughing. Has anyone had a similar experience? I’m so frustrated with this! I just want to be better!
