Adult chitchat

Hello MPD sounds frustrating you getting passed between gp and nurse. Been especially wheezey last few days - along with funny feeling in eyes, runny nose and scratchy throat.

Sounds a bit like a cold but I dont feel ill or coldy at all. Had hayfever once or twice as a teenager, but not since.

Go to GP and see if there's something you can take for it, I'd say the pharmacy but probably best to go to GP with your asthma. Does anyone else find that Ventolin isn't very effective? It virtually disappeared until about 1970 when I had my first adult attack which was scary as we were living in Sierra Le one at the time.

It wasn't too bad though until I had treatment ( chemo and rads) for breast cancer in 2006/7.

It may sound daft but at night I find f I put Vicks on my chest last thing and breathe down the neck of my nightie then I sleep better-as long as I am propped up.

I often cannot tell whether it's the beginning of an allergic episode or a cold, my throat can feel really sore with either and I often feel feverish too it just stays like the first signs of a cold IYSWIM.

I think I developed rhinitis after several years of asthma.

Can't quite recall where we were up to last time, but my baby is now a week off six months old - I have no idea where the time has gone or is going.

Through all of her newborn days, autumn, winter, etc etc, fairly inexplicably I have had the best wintertime in about 4 years with very little asthma episodes (just one chesty cold I think - again !

It depends on why I am breathless ( not that I always know!
