Hey my Lovelies,
How are you keeping?! I previously posted the first part of The Breathless SpUni-corn series a couple of months ago and now I’m back for part 2.0 where I mention a few things that have helped me to gain a steady level of control over my asthma.
In this post I’ll speak about:
- Prescribed asthma medication
- Habits I’ve tried to adopt in order to help alleviate asthma symptoms/attacks
- Clenil Modulite 100
- Fostair 100/6
Habits that have helped to alleviate the affects of my Asthma
- Taking my recommended doses of medication prescribed for my asthma by my GP nurse
- Drinking room temperature water as soon as I wake up
- Using my Air Humidifier especially at night to keep air circulated (I try to avoid opening my window especially at night time as I struggle to breathe with the air pressure change at night time
- Using a cambridge face mask when I’m in/out of the house, feeling under the weather, in polluted areas
- Getting the flu jab ( got my first one in December)
- Covering my chest with a scarf or two when outside
- Breathing in hot steam from a shower to clear airways whilst taking deep breathes
I had an asthma check-up last week by a nurse at my regualr GP’s. Everything was fine, I just mentioned what my triggers and asthma irritance are but my oxygen levels have been ok recently as long as I avoid stairs that is, haha
I’m continuing to take my Fostair inhaler twice a day and whenever I feel my chest getting tight or finding it a little harder to breathe then I take my Salamol inhaler in between (which has thankfully cut down a lot since the start of winter)
If you suffer from asthma what are some things that have helped you to better manage this chronic illness?!
