I’m new here, so nice to meet y’all!
The past 6 weeks I had been experiencing chest pain, particularly whilst laying down in bed and taking deep breaths. I finally saw my GP who suspects I have asthma, he said he’s 98% certain after listening to my chest and seeing a few days of my peak flow readings (I have to wait for a long function test to confirm his diagnosis).
I have been given a preventer and a reliever inhaler for my symptoms. I’d just like to ask if a feeling of having something stuck in your throat/wind pipe is normal? I feel I’m having to constantly clear my throat lately..
I’m also wondering if any asthma sufferers experience some acid reflux? I usually find myself burping a lot after taking my inhalers, so maybe that’s a sign I’m not using them correctly? Although it’s been under a week using them so I guess that’s expected.
Thank you for reading!
