I don’t know if anyone else does this but I always make a list of things I want to ask my asthma nurse/doctor when I have an appointment.
So I have an appointment coming up on the 30th. I have a few things that I want to ask her:
- Can I have a refill on my inhalers and can I change my steroid + LABA to a combination inhaler
- Can I have all my inhalers in dry powder form – they are easier to use when the hand joints decide to flare
- Is there anything that I can take in addition to my current meds that will help me control my asthma when I have come into contact with swimming pool chlorine
- Is there anything I can take that will help me move the junk out of my chest – I’ve got loads of junk in my chest from the cold I had in May, which turned into another cold, then a chest infection, then another cold, then a sinus infection and then has decided to leave me with lots and lots of really thick, sticky mucus that I cant move.
I usually tend to forget at least one of these points so I shall see how I do this time.
