Supposed to go for rehab assessment tomorrow but have just rescheduled it for Sept. My breathing is so bad. Don't think new inhalers Spiriva and Symbicort are doing me much good. On them for 5 weeks now, and breathing seems worse to me, and not sure they suit me. Really struggling and fed up! I have Brompton clinic next Tuesday for follow up to change of inhalers so persevering until then, although have thought about going back to Flixotide and Atrovent, but resisted so that Brompton docs can see what is happening with these new inhalers. The whole of me feels so dry, would this be affect of one or both of these inhalers? So drinking plenty, although am on water tablets. Ankles swollen, but still putting that down to the heat, hoping they will calm down soon now it's cooler. So good to be able to post on here, and get help and support from all you guys who I'm sure understand
