Hi - I have asthma and normally it doesn't cause too much of a problem for me. When I have a cold, flu or chest infection, I am highly prone to a significant drop in my peak flow. I have this problem on average only once every year to two years. Because I used to sing, my average peak flow count is around 500-600.
At the moment I'm at 200-250 and have already taken a day off work last week. Out of interest, If you was on a temporary contract at work and not paid sick leave, would you go to work today or stay at home? I am having trouble breathing while walking and have some pain in my upper back when I breathe in and out. I am going to see my doctor and intend to go to work straight after.
