I was put on Fostair a few months ago - fine for about 6 weeks then feeling worse again. A few days ago (during my current flare up - worst yet and first A&E trip - joy) I have been told to double it to 2 puffs four times a day. I have been doing this and although my peak flow is coming up a bit i am getting worsening shortness of breath on minor exertion. It’s like I can set off walking at a normal pace (I even forget that I will have a problem sometimes!) and breathe normally but after a few steps I’ve become exhausted - like a tight band round my chest makes it not impossible to breathe but exhausting. I’m left gasping for breath with head between legs. I can do a good stationary peak flow because - just like when walking- I can push through the tightness for a bit before it gets too much.
Is there anyone else had anything similar?
