I have cough variant asthma which is currently not well controlled at all. I am waiting to see a specialist but that isn't until the 10th September and unable to be moved forward despite going to a and e.
Cigarette smoke is one of the triggers and I struggle just walking around towns and cities. I currently breath out or hold my breath when I see someone smoking and walk past but sometimes I miss it or havw to take a breath and it sets me off coughing.
Has anyone got any strategies for coping in cities or areas where it is essentially impossible to avoid smokers.
I'm currently on fostair, fexofenadine and montelukast and am currently having to take lots of salbutamol to stop me coughing.
It is so debilitating and currently basically ruining my life and what normal activities can do.
Is there any way anyone knows of, of speeding up the specialist appointment?
