Does anyone get episodes of increased shortness of breath, or cough, or wheeze, or tight chest that subside without any treatment? Or do those symptoms get worse until you have to use the blue inhaler?
Before I was started on Fostair (oh my goodness! SO much better!) last week I often found that I would get symptoms, but because I didn't like the wobbliness that the blue inhaler gave me, I would try not to take it. Often the symptoms went away after anything from a few minutes to a few hours, leaving me wondering whether I really needed the blue inhaler at all.
My resp nurse and the GPs are still not on the same page about whether I'm asthmatic or post-viral. Reading other people's posts makes me think that true asthma doesn't improve by itself. Or is it more about those unknown triggers and how removing them improves things?
