    Asthma/copd overlap

    I was in the hospital with asthma attack and recently I have Been told I have some permanent damage in my lungs. I had no infection going on but the flare up was quite bad.
    I had over 80 puffs of ventolin in just under 12 hours, steroids by iv after having 50 mg Of prednisone around eight hours before I came to the hospital. I also was given atrovent every four hours along with alvesco. My oxygen level was above 90 which is low for me and
    Went down to 88 on exertion while I was in the hospital.
    I am still finding I need ventolin every four hours and more if I exert myself
    Too much. Stairs are an issue too.

    Can anyone relate?

    I am still having issues with my lungs.
    I am back on prednisone and then tapered for two weeks.

    Has anyone else suffered from permanent damage in the lungs from
    Chronic persistent asthma?
