I'm sorry about having to post another question here but I'm really struggling at the moment. I woke up this morning feeling the same as usual (tight chest but I'm used to it now) but throughout the morning my symptoms increased a lot and now it feels like I'm having an attack though I'm not wheezing (I can hear a high pitched wheeze on forced exhale, sore and tight chest, it feels like there's a giant rock sitting on my chest). I have sometimes a burning sensation that can go up in my nose. I also feel like my trachea is inflamed. Does a trachea inflammation also happen in an asthma attack or flare up ? I would really like to avoid taking oral steroids again (especially since they don't work for me) so I'm wondering if I could increase the dose of seretide ? I am now taking seretide 250 (2 puffs in the morning and 2 puffs in the evening). I know that you can use Fostair as a reliever but I'm not sure about seretide. I tried asking my doctor for a seperate steroid inhaler but he refused and said that seretide was stronger and better for my case!
The last doctor I saw told me that asthma didn't cause chest pain but I often feel like my lungs ache when I have trouble breathing. So, can chest pain be a symptom of asthma or does it indicate that there is something else going on ?
Is it possible in asthma to have more trouble breathing in than out ? According to a doctor I saw a few months ago it can't be asthma is the difficulty breathing occuts on the inhale rather than the exhale.
