What do you do when you’re at the beginning of a flare and you’re not great but not bad enough to see anyone/do anything?😬😅
I’m currently on a very slow downwards spiral which feels different to usual due to starting mepo I think. I’m quite tight and have a poor PF (45-60%), but otherwise no (or very slight) wheeze/cough and only mildly SoB. I have no signs of infection/cold other than sneezing more/mildly runny nose (from allergies I think) and a headache from the mepo. 99% sure this is all triggered from the weather change as it started over a week ago and has gradually worsened (Coincided with the week pre-mepo so assumed symptoms were due to that 😅)
I’ve upped my pred to 30mg but I’m still relying on my ventolin ever 4/5 hours. I defo don’t feel bad enough for hospital but I know my GP can’t do anything more other than nebs which realistically I can just do at home and still don’t feel bad enough for. So what do I do now? Usually I’d just wait it out til I feel it (much to my hosp/GP horror/hatred!), but cause it feels different (not necessarily in a bad way) I thought I’d ask what you guys do... should I wait it out til I actually feel bad, or do I ‘kick up a fuss’ and if so with whom? As I said I currently don’t actually feel that bad (so would defo feel a fraud if I sought help), and it’s only mildly limiting my daily activities, however I’m known to ‘underestimate’ my symptoms/condition, hence the conundrum.
