Hi. This is a first time post. I've struggled to keep my asthma under control for 5 months, since my vaccine. I had a bad flare up 2 weeks ago. My doctor prescribed Prednisone 40mg for 5 days plus antibiotics. This didn't seem to help, and I returned to the surgery on Tuesday. Doctor said my chest is still congested with 'crackling' all over, and prescribed another 5 day Pred burst. Tomorrow is day 5, but I don't feel any better. My peak flow is 250 (usually 400. My chest is tight, I feel pressure, and i'm coughing constantly. The chest pressure is the worst. I'm off work, and resting.
My doctor said I can't have a nebuliser and that Pred is the most he can give me. I have Avascular Necrosis and very thin skin, so I'm reluctant to see my doctor again on Monday for a third dose of steroids. I want to feel better, but don't know what to do? Is it appropriate to go to A&£ or call 111? Any advice welcome.
P.S I take Spiriva, Flutiform, and Alvesco. I'm doubled up on inhalers and have been for 2 weeks.
