Am having to undergo tests at the moment to establish whether the wheezing I have developed over the past 3 years has fledged into Asthma, I have good lung functions as has been proved with the test this morning; above what they predicted. On Monday afternoon I have to attend a clinic for a test where I have to breathe out steadily for a period of 6 seconds; doesn't seem that difficult but I have to do it 3 times to see if ventolin will help during the second part of the test.
If it proves conclusively that I have developed asthma then I get to get regular checks on it, and get a free flu jab - just to ensure that I don't develop the same problems I did earlier this year when I had four course of antibiotics to try and clear the chesty cough I had after getting flu just after Christmas.
SOH is always having to nag me to use my inhaler, something I find incredibly difficult to do in front of other people. Something to do with having to do multiple things in quick sequence; not my strong point, never could get the actions together for rubbing stomach and patting head right so perhaps with more practice..
