I've had asthma since I was a toddler and it's mostly kept in check with inhalers and montelukast. I usually get chest infections in colder weather but I have strange symptoms just now. I live in Scotland so it's not been too crazy temperatures but up to 26 degrees. It feels like someone is strangling me round my neck, I'm short of breath, non productive cough and have palpitations (probably from my reliever). I've been like this for 2 weeks now. First week I got 3 days of prednisolone and 7 days of amoxicillin. Last week I got ( and am on for another few days) another week of prednisolone and a week of doxycycline. It doesn't feel like my usual chest infections. My O2 readings are between 95-98% and heart rate between 89-113 at rest. Any thoughts? Thanks.
