That dreadful feeling when you wake up and realise you’re sick 😷. The question is do I book urgent GP appt today, or wait til I’m at my specialist hosp tomorrow? Do I let the specialist know as meant to start mepo tomorrow?
I have severe asthma and have already upped my pred to 40mg. I don’t think it’s a bacterial infection (usually feels different) so probs won’t get antibiotics, and I’m already on the max amount of drugs the GP can give and I have a home neb if needed.
Current symptoms are;
coughing up small amounts of yellow gunk (sorry)
SoB/tightness sitting up (little better when lying down)
Difficulty breathing in and out (especially in and on deep breathes)
No temperature (very rarely get on tho so)
10 vent raises PF from 290 to 350 (/630)
Muscle aches (esp neck and upper back)
Don’t actually feel that bad tho - I can still function so 🤷♀️
So do I wait til tomorrow or see my GP today? And should I let my asthma nurse know?
