Hi everyone, I'm an almost 70 year old asthmatic of over 6 decades. When I was a kid it was pretty bad but just about went away for a few decades. Now I'm almost 70 I get moments when I can't sleep on my left side as I get pain and a lot of phlegm. Sometimes I make a sudden move and the left side of my chest hurts and I get the phlegm in my throat.
My GP sent me to get an X ray and that was OK then after another bout I had a 3d x ray which was fine. I do get breathless at times
So here I am with the same problem and overdoing it on Ventolin and taking Trelegy Ellipta (once a day) and a Loratadine.
The phlegm and pain in the left side is the part that is concerning me.... The professionals have said I'm OK. Any knowledge is most welcome.
I'm not crippled with Asthma and you wouldn't know I had it unless you were told. By the way I am on Prednisolone and have been for about 4 years as I have PMR. My GP upped the dose of Pred to 10 for a week as I had gotten down to 4mg
