Re: Autoimmunity and Asthma
For me time and experience has let me know where my danger point is, my also my asthma/allergy doctors over the years have have given me key numbers to keep in mind. For instance, I know that I just do not feel well and usually very tired when my peak flows are consistantly below 440 (again, my norm is pretty high right now) or so. It is also at this point that I can consider using my nebulizer to try to improve function (my doctor's instructions). When my peak flows are in the 300s and 200s, I will have trouble laying down and sleeping because I feel like am suffocating. If I am in the 100s, I go to the emergency room if I can't get hold of the doctor. Luckily this hasn't been the case since I was about 21 or 22. (I am now 29).
What bluebanana said sounds rights. It's a better way to explain it.
