Hi all, I have a 13 year old son with 'chronic poorly controlled asthma'. We (he) has a tough 18 months after being very well controlled for several years, he is back under a consultant who he is seeing about every three months while we adjust his meds and try and get him back under control.
Twice since term started in September he has woken coughed quite a bit (that bit happens most days) and then thrown up. On both occasions he has been sick once or twice and then seemed much better. I have a feeling the vomiting is linked to the cough/Asthma and not a bug/other cause but just wondering how likely that is and if that is likely what I should do. I am certain he is still poorly controlled but don't have another specialist appointment until the beginning of December.
He had an attack that resulted in burst treatment at the hospital at the end of September and feel like another could happen any day while he hovers in this almost constant wheezy state of not really I'll but certainly not really well either.
Any advice on what I should do, feel like the GP will get sick of me if I keep taking him when he's not really ill (and he hates going) but feel uneasy about him, not sure if I am becoming neurotic about it??
