it's confusing a simple Scotsman like me having both Asthma and newly diagnosed Bronchiectasis knowing just what is going on within my mighty chest! for instance last visit to gp I was somewhat surprised that she prescribed the steroids for an Asthma related wheeze and chest rattle, as I had assumed that the culprit was the Bronchie thingy, how do they differentiate between them? one thing I discovered only tonight was regarding the Symbicort inhaler I'm on, months ago the gp said that I could use it as a "reliever" as well as a preventer, so I stopped carrying and using the Ventolin, only to spot, in red writing on the side of the Symbicort "DO NOT USE AS RELIEVER" !!!! so for quite a while I've deprived my lungs of the neccessary medication. please moderator, let this be read as I'm fed up typing my life story only for you to delete it, thankyou, hugs and kisses xx
