Hope they sort him out. When this happens here we have to use prednisolone which sorts it out pretty damn quick.
I don't know what has triggered him obviously, but the asthmatics in this house (me included ) have all been a lot worse in this hot heavy weather. I was wondering if a particular pollen was out at the moment.

How is he, Riven?
Hope he's better!

This happened to DP a few months ago he was almost admitted to hospital .
He got a script for a course of steroids and had to monitor his peak flow for a while he is now on Symbicort and it has helped a lot he no longer coughs his lungs up every morning and he said it makes him feel as though he can get a good deep breath in for the first time in years .

I hope your DH gets better soon asthma is scary .
