Hi all 🙋♀️,
So I'm on AUK so some may know me from there. When I first joined last year my diagnosis was severe uncontrolled asthma, allergic asthma, eosinophilic asthma, sinusitis, reflux, hayfever blah blah the usual that go with it!
Had asthma since 11, the "normal" kind problematic at winter and exacerbated by hayfever but not a real problem. Few rough spells needing nebs at gp so avoided hospital 😁.
Prednisolone was needed more an more gp referred to hospital first appointment nov 2019. Was going down route of biologics as they tried everything.
The whole of last year since dec went from bad to worse asthma wise struggling at work I'm an RGN, was exposed to covid dec an feb 2020 before it was a big thing and before testing.
Now, coincidence my asthma chose the very same year of global pandemic to play up.. maybe.
I had to reduce my hours at work, then end of April told I'm CEV by respiratory this was a shock and where I was told about my severe asthma diagnosis etc.
Aug B/H ended up being admitted to hospital for 5 days, where my world flipped over... my cons ref me to severe asthma clinic as said he was out of his depth... new cons said I have BPD I said about my theory of long covid he stated that's 1 of the main symptoms with tachycardia which they were were worried about me being tachy 156 at rest, resps 46... then doubted I had asthma... and this cycle is still going on everyone says a different thing!!
I'm fed up!! Gp diagnosed long covid last month, cons disagreed 🤦♀️🤷♀️ as no lung scarring.
I'm now day 3 no pred whoop to try an have mannitol test!!!
Sorry for long post prob missed the important bits out 😂🤣😂🤣.
