thankfully the coughs eased, and now grandaugthers getting worse,

Julie Ann
hope they feel better soon.

you are right about asthma with oldest went to a todler group at a special school and one of the teachers ran it, she disappeared one week and found out she had an asthma attack and died, so many of the mums went to her funeral had to stand so you are right people shouldnt ignore it.

What a worry for you love.
glad to hear that she is a bit better, but do keep onto the doctor. I don't think they pay enough attention these days.

Hi Julie Ann, I have asthma but I don't have asthma attacks which is quite different to having asthma. Mine appears if its too hot or too cold and damp or if I have a bad cold which too often turns into a chest infection. I often need antibiotics when I have a chest infection and these make my symptoms worse until I finish the course, many doctors don't mention this to patients. Hope daughter and little one get better fast. shirley.x

thanks for that

i dont think they pay enough attention either, daughter saw asthma nurse week before, she was bad then, hubby took her to A an E midweek, she was on nebuliser, on the friday they put her on one again in surgery, i dont know why they held back on steroid tabs, cos she clearly needed them,

she just text to say , grandaughters chest is clear, but the doc gave her antibiotics anyway , she coughs just like daughter, i dont get why they say chest is clear, its in your lungs i thought with asthma too,

dawn its awful sad isnt it wen something like that happens, i think some dont realise it can be fatal

thanks shirley,
thats how daughter is, not often has attacks, but if left too long with heat or damp weather, or humid, she gets worse and worse,
stress too makes it bad with her

Hi Julie Ann

I was diagnosed with asthma in my mid twenties, I had a really bad time in and out of hospital for about four years with it. I finaly found out I was allergic to my pet rats. They werent the only thing that set me off, humid or really cold weather, dry ice, polution and some strong perfumes still make me wheeze, but I havent had a attack for about 6 years now. If your daughter isnt happy with her doctor I would suggest she changes, my doctors son had asthmas so he is really into it and tried me on all sorts of new drugs untill we got it under control. I also practiced breathing techniques which really helps to stop you panicking when your having an attack, belive me I know how scary it is, it feels as if your drowning thats the only way I can describe it. Take a look at I wish your daughter and g daughter the very best of luck in getting this horrid illness under control.
