Just need to vent...

Today my lungs didn't wanna behave. I felt like there was an elephant on my chest all day...used my albuterold twice...I'll see how I'm feeling when I go back at the end of the month...they want me to get a chest exray first (What's that gonna show them?) plus I gotta get a physical from my GP before I can join the golf team, so...heh. I wouldn't be surprised if they end up bumping my pulmicort back up to 2 doses morning/night (2 clicks a day). Now I'm just doing 1 click at night. Is that true that lung function is worse at night? Anyway...just had to vent...lol Doctors drove me nuts before all this started, and now it's just frustrating to be going there so much...but at least they are great at what they do and explain everything. :-) I mean, I know they want me to be on the lowest dose of everything, but judging from the last few days, I don't know if one click is enough.

Anyway...I think I'm done for now. :P

Re: Just need to vent...

Howdy!

I know what you mean about them wanting us on the lowest dose of everything. My doc kept insisting I go down to Advair 100/50,,,everytime I dropped it I went into a flare. I had to beg to be bumped up to 250/50,,,eeeerrrrrrrr!

On your Pulmicort,,,how do you take it? I'm on it for bronchitis right now,,,via my neb,,,just curious.

Sure hope you are feeling better.

Re: Just need to vent...

I don't have a neb, so I just take the inhaled powder...Yeah, I'm feeling a bit better today, but still not the greatest.

I know for me,,,it seems like the Pulmicort takes a few days to start to
kick in.
Keep feeling better!

Re: Just need to vent...

Yeah, I'm feeling a lot better today compared to yesterday. Coughed up some stuff this morning, though. Only used my albuterol once compared to like 3 times yesterday though, and I can breathe pretty good...so I'm a happy camper. :P
