Hi all, I have started a bit of a cold, feel a bit rubbish. And, of course, my asthma has kicked in, so I have increased my Symbicort. My peakflow is down to marginally above 80% of my best, so not that bad at all, at least not yet.
However, when I looked at the asthma U.K. website I noticed that they have now removed all references to percentages, and that I find difficult. Though I am better at noticing when things are not quite right, it is not often except when either really unwell or reacting to exercise that it even occurs to me to take extra ventolin, so that rule of thumb is useless for me, has always been.
How are we now supposed to know when to seek help? If it is quite bad it is easy, but if borderline? I have so far been prone to leaving it longer than adviceable, though I am getting better at managing it. I miss the numbers! (And could, of course, still use them, even if that is no longer on any guidance.) What do the rest of you do? Especially you with moderate asthma, like me?
