Hi, resp cons this week says not asthma he thinks but hyper reactive airways. Given Avamys for daily use but told not to use any regular therapy for any SOB unless e.g. chest infection, for which he gave script for prednisolone to keep at home. Also a script for Symbicort 200 but told this is not for regular use. So I'm really confused!
Peak flow was v good for me when I saw him and I've not taken preventer for ages. But I find peak flow varies hugely throughout the day, from 340 7f if i take it when i feel pretty suddenly breathless to 460 when everything's fine. No real trends, just a bit all over the place - so is that asthma or not? And how wouod using Symbicort occasionally help, that would be using it like a reliever presumably?
