I've been having a scary time of it recently. I've had several asthma attacks this week (pretty bad ones, I think) and I'm now on prednisone to try and get things under control (my first dose was this morning). My chest is pretty tight currently, but no attack today, thankfully. I'm pretty freaked out by it all, which I'm sure doesn't help, and I was already worried by the coronavirus situation - I'm not on the shielding list, but I haven't left the house since March. No clue what's going to happen in the months ahead for me.
Does anyone have any advice that could help? I also wondered if asthma can get worse or change over time? I don't really know too much about it, I've come to realise, which is pretty shocking for a condition I've had for over a decade, so hoping to educate myself.
I don't know if any of this is helpful, but I was 18 when I was diagnosed with asthma and I'm now 29. I take 200 clenil twice a day and this is the first time I've been given oral steroids. Ventolin is my reliever.
Thanks in advance for any help!
