Suffering with asthma No idea what to do

Im a 21 year old male I've had asthma for my entire life but as of late I've been really suffering ive had 4 asthma attacks over last week and a half Not Seriously Dangerous But enough for me to be out of action my chest is rather sore from the coughing ive been using my Ventolin inhaler up to 33-55 times per attack which my doctor said is fine. ive also been using my seretide 2 puffs a day I've also recently had Bacterial Pneumonia which really played havoc on my asthma id have expected to be coughing up flem which i was for a few days but now It feels like i just don't have the strength to cough up the flem i feel it when i go to cough but nothing comes up and if it does it gets stuck in my throat and i start to feel like im choking then i start coughing more because i cant get any air. ive seen my regular doctor and After hours GPs i have no idea what to do They said it will pass but its been almost 2 weeks 4 different antibiotics and no real results Please give me some advice thx

Re: Suffering with asthma No idea what to do

Evidently you are not seeing a pulmonologist which you really should be. The pneumonia is really exacerbating your issues. You should have an Asthma Action Plan which would lay out how to add meds, etc when you are sick or having an attack/flare. See the top of the asthma page for a really good generic one that will give you an idea of what one looks like. Hope this helps.
