Asthma is quite a new diagnosis for me (sept 2020). I was initially using Kehale (4 puffs morning 4 puffs evening), however couldn’t get my peak flow above 300. Asthma nurse then moved me onto fostair 100/6. I have 2 puffs morning, 2 puffs lunch and 2 puffs evening and my peak flow increased to 350 however this is still a stretch from my optimum which should be 420.
I’ve had a couple of asthma attacks in the past 3 weeks for which we had to have an ambulance. After the first attack I was put on steroids for a week but my peak flow still didn’t increase however it helped with the general asthma symptoms. My last asthma attack was 2 days ago so I’m yet to speak to my GP.
I was wondering if there are any asthma veterans out there who are living with the condition and a normal life and their optimum peak flow? I miss running and not being out of breath all the time. I’m 34 and usually very fit.
