I’ve been asthmatic since childhood, but never a problem. However caught flu and then pneumonia at Christmas, ended up in hospital for 4 days, felt mostly better after 3 months and a change to Fostair (using as reliever also as needed) + monteleukast.
Then I caught a virus in April, back in hospital for 10 days, still struggling with constant chest tightness and breathlessness now. Definitely made worse by allergies but sadly the only antihistamine I can tolerate is 2mg piriton 6 hourly.
Respiratory consultant changed inhaler to Alvesco 3 weeks ago in attempt to improve hoarseness. I’ve been really struggling this last week, any suggestions? Has anyone else found the last few days difficult for their asthma?
I’m told this is all down to ongoing inflammation from viruses, allergies and dysfunctional breathing - would really welcome any thoughts or hear from anyone who has experienced such a long recovery!
