ASTHMA 1: ME 0.

For some reason my normally well controlled asthma out of control, last Friday saw our GP calling an emergency ambulance. 

Infection (not surprising as a recent chest infection had seen me with two courses of antibiotics), fluid on the lungs and a blood clot ruled out, the doctors at a loss, I'm awaiting a ultrasound scan of my heart .... not that they expect to find anything amiss here, the doctor's words, not mine. The top and bottom of it is I'm rather poorly.

Visiting you all as and when I feel able, I'm also way behind with my posts - my sincere apologies to those authors/publishers anticipating a review. Please bear with me, I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll feel more like blogging come next week.

I hate that you're feeing so poorly - I know that doesn't help with one's mood, either... at least it never does in my case.

Hoping you're back to good health and all your regular activities soon!

I hope it was just the infection that got you down and that it clears easily. Take care of yourself! ((HUGS))

How awful, Tracy! I do hope you are feeling better. And I hope the ultrasound finds nothing amiss.

Hi Tracy,

There have been some very nasty infections doing the rounds, down here in the South.

They have been hitting both old and young alike and are leaving some pretty nasty and long lasting damage behind.

I hope that now you have the professionals on your case, that a diagnosis will be reached soon and you can begin a more targeted treatment.

If you are anything like me, feeling under the weather always affects my mood when I can't get on with 'business as usual', but try to stay positive and we'll see you soon :)

Tracy, I have been out of town and am just now reading your post. Hopefully, you are feeling much better by now. I hope you will get a chance to read and relax as you recuperate.

Oh no Tracy, I’m so sorry to hear that. Not wanting to worry you but my neighbour also suffers from asthma and has been really unwell for some weeks. It turns out she has pneumonia, but things had to get really bad before anyone realised. She had all kinds of tests (including heart tests), but because she had been injected against pneumonia, it was ruled out. It might just be worth mentioning to your doctor if you haven’t already. Get well soon.

So sorry you're feeling under the weather! Have you been tested for food allergies? My asthma was uncontrollable for a long time, until my doctor tested me for food and dye intolerances. Since giving up white breads and anything with certain dyes, my asthma is finally under control with just a rescue inhaler on rare occasions.
