Ok this could as long as my arm but I’m going to try and keep it as short as possible.
All started with blotchy skin back in October 2018. When ever I touched my skin anywhere on my body it goes all red and blotchy for about 20-30 mins.
Couple weeks later my skin started being really itchy, I would get pimples and bumps along with blotchy red patches when itching.
Week later I get a cold. Towards the end of my cold I started developing breathing problems.
As soon as I laid down in bed I would find it really hard to breath! Felt like I couldn’t take in enough air.
Over the last 5 months it’s got worse and worse.
I have a irritating cough upon waking in the middle of the night ! Only starts in the evening and night, I wake 2-3-4 times a night coughing and finding it hard to breath.
Medication that I have been on since October last year !
Started with blue & brown inhalers
Went into fostair 100/6 and blue
Went into seretide and blue
Went into symbicort 200/6 dry powder inhaler
Had prednisone steroid a few times (did absolutely nothing)
All lung tests, chest X-rays, blood tests fine
We even tried anxiety tablets no joy
My consultant appointment has been brought towards to next week.
At present I am going through 2 blue inhalers a week (52 puffs a day) and 12 puffs of symbicort a day
I’m hoping the consultant will be able to prescribe me some “add on meds” to my daily routine and find the cause of all this!
I’m tired ! Frustrated, annoyed that this has been going on so long uncontrolled! It’s affecting everyday life for me!
Could it be Ashma or another condition which is going un-noticed. It’s been 5 months of hell and I don’t think I can take it much longer.
Last week I woke up with chronic cramp in my legs ouch, some times my veins feel like they are popping out the bottom of my foot
