So just been to my GP who has put me on a course of steroids after that nasty cough/cold bug doing the rounds has hit and I haven’t been able to shake off for the last two weeks and as a consequence has set my so called seasonal asthma off! So been back on my Clenil Modulite as it hit my breathing straight away, and salbutamol when needed, which has settled everything down quite well and quite quickly too, but had a rough night last night coughing and wheezing, and my peak flow is down from about 520 to 400 (even lower than when I was first DXd over the summer!)
He offered me the flu jab, said he would do it then and there if I’d like him to or I could book in to have it done in their flu clinic, however I decided to book an appointment later as I want to get over this flare up and this cold before I deal with anything else! I also have a hospital appointment Sunday morning so don’t want to bring in the flu bug!! My question is, obviously I understand it’s important to get it done, but has anyone else had it done, and do you get side effects from it? I work in a nursery, so would I need time off? Or would it not be contagious? Loads of questions that I wish I had in my head at the time, rather than after I’d left!!
