Wheezy woes Asthma/bronchiectasis

Hi Everyone , finished my 5 day course of steroids last Monday , ended up in out of hours last night doc advised multi dose on ventolin . My ribs are agony but can't work out if it's coming off cough or if I feel swollen inside . Sorry if this sounds silly but I've only managed 2 1/2 hours sleep . Is it wrong to get wee one out to school & go back to bed ??? 湘

  • You need your rest Polly. Get your sleep when you can!

    Take care and I hope that you're feeling much better soon.

  • Thank you Pam x

  • please make an appointment with your GP or nurse today.....you may need more steroids or antibiotics.

    The Ventolin will open your airways to help you breathe , but you need the underlying cause of your pain investigated.

    The nurse at the BLF helpline may be available to give advice....but please ring your surgery .

    Best wishes

  • Multi dise ventolin through spacer is excellent -I had about 3 hrs sleep then 10 doses 2 hours sleep and another 10 the other night before the antibiotics kicked on during the day

  • One squirt of ventolin only in spacer at a time I was told and repeat multiple times -breathing happens!

  • Thanks Mardi for the advice x
