I have taken my preventive inhaler as per norm. I've been so wheezy & breathless for the past day. inhalers dnt seem to doing much. am taking amoxillin at the moment for d flu dat doesn't seem to want to go away.... any one else having the same kinda symptoms. I think the air is very thick at the moment & causing me to be like this ( a lot wheezier then usual).
if it gets worse I think I should consider visiting the g.p again on Monday but am thinking just see the course of anti-biotics through first!
thanks ladymarychristmas. I use my preventer twice a day usually but don't tend to have to use the reliver all that much but already today I've used it 3 times. I'll keep an eye on it I don't think it will get to the stage of twice an hour tbh but if it does I'll speak to out of hours.
I think I need to keep a bowl of water in my room to act as a humidifier tonight. I've not had the need to get one but it may be time to think about investing in one now!
nettospookerstar yeah apparently no infection & asked me to continue my inhalers but increase puffs as required... didn't give me any steroids either as they said it would interact with my regular meds. been told to go back to my G.P on Monday & get a complete asthma check up.
in the meantime been told if I have to use my reliver ten times in an hour & am still wheezy call 999! I would have anyway so a bit of a waste of time tbh
Y 'know what about the chocolate? I buy the 70% stuff and make rice milk choc with it for DH (and me I don't touch dairy 'cos as soon as i do i get horrible hay fever symptoms.) I love chocolate too but am quite happy with the dark.
The Buteyko is miraculous IMO! Congrats. for getting into it
