Hello, This is my first time posting here. I am admin from the running forums as I am an Uber keen runner on a run streak of 663 today ( if I manage to get out).
I am an asthmatic having very bad asthma as a child linked with allergies and could never go on school trips etc. As an adult I like to think I’m well managed and my running makes a huge difference.
However yesturday I had my first attack in 15 years. My inhalers did nothing, and my husband called 111 and they sent an ambulance. The paramedics were amazing, they stayed ages, gave me a nebuliser and wanted to take me to ED as my PF didn’t get better. They felt it was a reaction to the flu jab I’d had on Friday.
My husband ended up taking me to ED and by the time I saw the doctor I was a lot better and he just discharged me.
So my question is I wondered if anyone else had had a bad reaction to the flu jab? Also should I have a follow up with the asthma nurse. I’m taking a couple of days off work as I’m still feeling crap but not sure of next steps if any after having the attack?
Any advice is most welcome,
