Re: asthma worsening
You should see a pulmonologist for a proper asthma diagnosis and treatment plan. You may just need an adjustment in dosage or a change to Flovent or some other daily med. You should have a treatment plan that tells you what to do in case your asthma takes a change for t he worse.
As an example, my asthma is very well controlled. I take one puff of Flovent per day. In August 2007, we had had 12 straight days of temps over 100 degrees. i woke up the second night with trouble breathing. According to my plan, I added a 2nd puff per day until the weather returned to normal. Then I went back to my 1 puff per day. it worked perfectly.Good luck.
