    If I were you I would immediately refer the matter to your GP.

    There might be a perfectly acceptable and understandable reason for this but as you don't know what it is, it is better to take advice before it becomes a real problem.

    More information please!  Which inhalers are you using?  Do you mean the fee;ing of a lump or can it actually be seen, in which case your gp would be the person to have a look at it.

     Maybe you have reflux?

      Hi Jackie, You`re On More Inhalers Than Me {20 yrs sufferer} Try Rinsing Your Mouth Out After Inhaling Or Check For Candida (thush)
