The signs don't look good.
My breathing had deteriorated badly over the last 2 weeks. The weather has been hot at 40C over two days and later, humid.
I had a bad Asthma attack but one thing stood out. I failed to respond to the medication I normally take: Ventolin, Symbicort and Tilade. This is despite the Ventolin increased to 6 puffs every 6 hours.
Last Thursday week, had to take a large dose of Prednisolone to try to placate the Asthma. Starting at 37.5mg for 2 days, 25mg for 2 days and finally, 12.5mg before stopping.
Asthma was only marginally improved.
This is now causing consternation. Went to see my GP and she ordered a blood test.
I will know next Thursday if the Sarcoidosis has flared again.
The same conditions I'm suffering now are exactly the same conditions I had last time there was a flare up.
Time to consider the question of having to go through another 10 month Prednisolone course.
Right now, my anwer is no. No, I don't what to go through that again, even though the consequences of not doing so are dire.
It seems to be little point. Two failures so far, as the Sarcoidosis has flared up twice, just as I have just recovered from the last of the Prednisolone.
Not feeling well at all right now, the left eye is hurting again and light sensitive.
I'm going to ask about palliative care and whether I'm a candidate for such treatment.
I no longer want to do this any more.
