I've not been on here this week because I had a really bad asthma attack, & have spent :-Dthe week on CCU at the Whittington Hospital, North London, as I had taken my daughter to see her Nanny.
I did some BLS training on Monday, then deteriorated badly. At one point I thought I was going to end up on the Obit thread.
But I'm improving, & they say I am due for release Friday.

For those in the know, when I was admitted my peak flow was 105, normally it's 550-600

I used to get really bad asthma for a time when I was younger. It can be really scary. Thankfully, it is much less strong these days.

Never had asthma myself, but have several friends who suffered from it and have witnessed many pretty bad attacks. When someone gets a bad attack the effects are pretty scary. One guy I knew unfortunately died at just 50 from a severe attack. So you have my sympathises. Get well soon.

I went out for a few drinks last night and had, for the first time ever, an allergic reaction to a pint of beer. My eyes started watering and my nose was streaming. The beer tasted really good and other people were drinking it, so I don't think it had gone off. I initially thought I was struck by a sudden cold and I stuck with it for half a pint before I realised what the probem was.

 

I was fearing the worst ... a lifelong allergy to real ale ... :ohmy:

 

but, fortunately, further experimenting proved successful.

 

Phew, what a relief.

:)

When you spend time in hospital as a patient or family of a patient you see how good the NHS is. With exception of te food and drink available.

I am out of hospital now and back at Chez Bleep. Although not feeling 100%. Monday night was the most scared I've ever been. At one point I really thought I was going to die, as the doctor who was looking after me had gone to the other side of the hospital, and no-one else was prepared to give me a nebuliser. My O2 sats had dropped below 80% and I wasn't shifting any air/oxygen at all. Eventually the doc came back, after being bleeped three time and answering on the 3rd attempt, and all she told me to do was try and breath slower, the only way that would have happened would've been in my death throws.

 

Just been out for a walk around the block, and I feel knackered. I'm on more pills than an Italian Bobsledder. Anti-biotics, steroids, anti-hypertensives, my usual stuff and now 3 inhalers..

 

Thank you to everyone who showed concern, I appreciate it.

I worked in respiratory research for a number of years and I remember vividly a testimonial from a lady who came to give a talk on severe asthma, something which she had suffered from from a very young age. I had never really appreciated just how bad it could get, she could barely leave the house because of her symptoms.

 

I assume that you have a local asthma clinic who can offer support? Hope you feel better soon.

We sometime take our health for granted until something strikes us down. Good luck Bleep on seeing this through and that it all ends well. My sister-in-law has a horrible cough most days down to asthma.

Tim, I do have a local respiratory / asthma clinic, I AM being referred there by my GP, although appointments do take awhile to come through.
Feeling better today, had an uninterrupted nights sleep which helped. GP has put me on even more pills, a steroid and an antibiotic,, so I should be fighting fit by weekend.

That's good as no disrespect to your GP but often they are not as up to date with current treatments as they could be. There's been a lot of new therapies approved recently for respiratory conditions, in particular a lot of combination therapies that combine treatments to give prolonged and more effective alleviation of symptoms (up to 24hr bronchodilation from one inhalation - not 100% sure if these are licensed for asthma as a lot of them were originally licensed for COPD).

Best wishes Bleep. Suffered from asthma when I was younger, and even though I only suffered the odd mild attack it can be quite terrifying and escalate quickly into something more dangerous.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.
