In the space of one week I have had two very severe sudden shortness of breath, it’s been the worst I have experience, first time I was at work and somehow got through as I didant want to let on this was happening ( I still manage to hide my illness due to being dismissed from my last job) second time it was at home one evening thinking “at what point do I actually go to the hospitial “ had my bag ready to go, I had decided who I would take with me although my whole family was home I didant want to worry them less I had to. Well I got my self through this with extra fostair 15 puffs of the other and took some steroids I found, and within an hour I felt this was getting better I was so pleased to be feeling normal although these incidents left me tired, tearful and scared of another happening, I managed to get a online appointment I told her what’s happened and she upped my fostair strength and gave me 5 day steroid course which seems great, I feel very good and my cough has stopped I’m hardly using my blue inhaler and only slight breathlessness here and there, but now my course is coming to an end and what happens next ? How long till the steroids wear off and will I have these horrible episodes return ? And also what would cause these episodes and would they be related, Wondering if any one has had this and is it possible that the sob won’t return due to a short steroid course and it the meantime I been referred back to chest clinic which is only a two month wait!
