new to the board... asthma help please

Hi everyone,

I am new to the thread and was wondering if any of you could help me in any way. I have read through some of the posts on here and found them extremely helpful.

I have had asthma from the age of 2 years old, I am now 27. It was pretty bad when I was little. I was constantly on nebulisers and various steroids. i generally dont get any trouble with it- until the cold weather approaches and then i tend to suffer more. I know my asthma is cold induced and also dust, smoke and cat hair can set off my allergies.
The past 2 months i have been so unwell. constant couging, runny nose I am very sleep deprived and my ribs and back hurt an incredible amount. I realise 2 months in the grand scale of things doesnt sound as awful as some of you on here and I am not trying to sound like a drama queen, but at the same time ive missed alot of work and feel like I am letting people down, its also effecting my quality of life. My shortness of breathe and constant tiredness have effected my social life and ability to work out. I have been to the doctors twice about this and have been given antibiotics and steroids each time, I am fine after a few days of taking them, once ive finished the dose within a couple of days i am ill again. It is so frustrating. i am on 2 inhalers at the moment. Salamol and clenil and i eat a varied diet. I am going to try some steam inhalation treatments and keep well out of the cold for as long as poss. Are there any other things I could be doing in the mean time. I would be so appreciative for a reply xxx

Re: new to the board..... asthma help please

Hi,
I have been an Asthmatic for forty years.
I was on Ventolin and Becotide for years.When I moved to where I live now I was prescribed an Inhaler named SERETIDE 125, It is a combination of both Reliever and Steroid Inhalers so I only need the one now.
It has worked brilliantly for me and I use just one puff in the morning and in the evening. I rarely need the Ventolin now.
I don't know if it would work for you as every case is different but thought I would mention it.

Solofelix.
