Morning! Happy 2019 everyone!
So I’ve been struggling with breathlessness and a really tight chest since Thursday (also been randomly sneezing and coughing) so popped to the doctors yesterday. Turns out I have caught the winter cold going round and needed some steroids 40mg x 5 days. (Already feeling heeps better!!! And even got a good nights sleep last night)
When I’ve been on prednisone in the past I’ve hated them because I can never seem to get my asthma back under control after coming off them but I’m not sure if that’s because previously my preventer inhalers weren’t doing the job? I’m hoping this time will be different.
What’s everyone else’s take on steroids? Do you find your asthma returns back to how it was when you come off them? Or do you always need a change around of inhalers?
I’m just hoping when I finish them on Friday I’m all back to my normal self (never need to use ventolin just my seretide 250 2puffs twice a day!)
Open to any advice/experiences please 😊
