Hi, I’ve just been diagnosed with viral asthma and started taking the blue inhaler last Monday. Was also given the brown inhaler last Friday (so on it just over a week). I’m on the last day of a 10 day course of steroid tablets and just in the middle of a course of antibiotics.
Any advice? Im having problems taking deep breaths to get enough air into my lungs - sitting or walking. The blue inhaler doesn’t really help - when I take 6-10 puffs it eases. I’m taking my blue inhaler more than I should. Olbas oil is helping when inhaled.
The soonest appointment I could get with an asthma nurse is in 2 weeks which seems a long time away. Especially when I find it hard to sleep! The doctor couldn’t really offer anything.
