I rang the Asthma UK helpline yesterday whilst recovering from my third attack and A&E admittance in a week, as I just didn’t know what to do.
They expert I spoke to was great, she gave me some really good advice and medications to explore with my specialist as well as other specialist consultations to request, something I’ll definitely be doing at my respiratory clinic appointment on Monday. She also directed me to where I can get help getting over the emotional side of an attack and today I feel like I have my fighting spirit back so thank you so much! I’ve phoned the helpline before and they were great then which is I phoned again and they were brilliant again.
On another happy note, my partner brought me one of those v shaped pillows so I could sleep with it under my ribs to try and ease the ache/pain in them and it’s worked! They don’t ache anywhere near as much as they did yesterday and I actually managed to get some sleep! A happy bunny all round!
